Massive cleanup initiative creates space, recoups taxpayer’s money

An Afghan contractor checks scrap metal and boxes loaded on back up a contracted "jingle" truck at Todd Maritime Services International, a coalition-contracted shipping and receiving yard in Kabul in July 2012. The metal and other coalition equipment was collected and sold with the help of the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office. The Deputy Command of Support Operations under NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan and within DCOM-SPO, Regional Support Command-Capital worked very closely with reutilization and marketing office on the project in hopes of showing their Afghan partners how to obtain funds from old equipment and scrap materials.
