    Thumbs up disposal

    Administrative services managers generally work in comfortable offices. Managers involved in contract administration and personal property procurement, use, and disposal may travel between their home office, branch offices, vendors' offices, and property sales sites. Also, facility managers who are responsible for the design of workspaces may spend time at construction sites and may travel between different facilities while monitoring the work of maintenance, grounds, and custodial staffs. However, new technology has increased the number of managers who telecommute from home or other offices, and teleconferencing has reduced the need for travel.

    Dictionaries say:
    disposal /dɪˈspəʊzəl/ n
    • the act or means of getting rid of something
    • placement or arrangement in a particular order
    • a specific method of tending to matters, as in business
    • the act or process of transferring something to or providing something for another
    • the power or opportunity to make use of someone or something (esp in the phrase at one's disposal)

    Does it really mean (getting rid of something) in my text? Can it mean selling or not?

    Thank you

    Re: disposal

    I imagine it depends on exactly what the personal property is and what value it has. If a company buys a fleet of cars for use during a construction project, when the project is over I imagine they try to sell the cars not take them to the landfill.
