TxVEMP Disposition Requirements

Your grant contract requires you to dispose of your equipment prior to reimbursement. We are here to help! Here is what you need to know.

How to Complete Disposition of Your Equipment

Grantees will be required to submit clear colored photographs of the equipment and engine before destruction. Photos should include both sides of the equipment, both sides of the engine block, and a picture of the engine plate (if visible).

Grantees will be required to cut a 3-inch or larger hole on both sides of the engine block along with cutting the frame rails on both sides of the old equipment. Some equipment may require different methods of rendering the equipment permanently inoperable and should be discussed with TxVEMP staff prior to completing disposition.

Grantees will be required to submit clear colored photographs of the equipment and engine after destruction. Photos should include both sides of the equipment with cuts to the frame rails, both sides of the engine block with 3-inch or larger holes, and a picture of the engine plate (if visible). It is recommended that you paint these specific areas before destruction so that the cuts and holes are clearly visible.

After destruction, grantees must obtain a Nonrepairable vehicle title for on-road vehicles. The title will be submitted along with disposition pictures and forms. Form VTR-441, Application for Salvage or Nonrepairable Vehicle Title, can be found on the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TXDMV) website. You must check the Nonrepairable Vehicle Title option at the top of the form. A small fee is charged for each title application. The form contains detailed instructions for submitting your application to the TXDMV.

Complete, print, and sign a Form 3A (Replacement Activities) or Form 3B (Repower Activities) for each piece of equipment or engine destroyed. Follow the tips and checklists provided within the Form to ensure you have provided all of the necessary information.

Grantees will be required to submit a completed and signed Form 3A or 3B, colored photographs of the equipment before and after destruction, and a copy of a Nonrepairable Vehicle Title (on-road vehicles only) for each activity included in a project application. Pictures may be submitted on a disk or USB. Complete disposition packets may be hand delivered or mailed to the TCEQ.
