Military Item Disposal Instructions 

The Military Item Disposal Instruction (MIDI) system provides methods of destruction for the disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous items used within the Department of Defense (DoD).  The MIDI system aids the preventive medicine officer and the logistician in proper disposal of outdated medical and non-medical items.  The database also serves the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service in their disposal mission.
