WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services (US) will transition in January 2018 to a field office, but their services will still be available to Wright-Patterson personnel looking to turn in equipment and hazardous waste.
“Wright-Patterson Air Force Base units will see little noticeable impact next year when the local DLA Disposition Services site transitions,” said Ken MacNevin, chief of Public Affairs for DLA Disposition Services, Battlecreek, MI.
The changes to staffing at some sites and the types of services provided by DLA Disposition Services is part of a network optimization program across U.S.-based sites and will have little impact on services.
“Property already being shipped to the large site at Columbus will still be shipped there,” MacNevin said. “The same disposal support representative who currently assists units at the base will remain stationed at Wright-Patt.”
“Better alignment of sites and personnel to our customers nationwide is the key component of our overall support to warfighters,” he said.
An environmental specialist who oversees contracts that provide units with compliant removal of hazardous waste items will also remain at the site full-time, according to MacNevin. A scrap yard will remain at the base. That has been the subject of a series of briefings given to Wright- Patterson units, the most recent last week.”
“We know that some bases face the need to turn in a number of computers as a result of mandatory changes,” MacNevin said. “We are sensitive to that challenge and will work closely with affected units. That will continue after the transition and include IT turn-ins. “Because the base is over 60 miles from our Columbus site, we will fund the transportation costs,” added MacNevin.
