    Im just wondering if there is any policy on returning old uniforms and if they need to be accounted for... There is a box at my center that people throw their old unis in, and i have some extras that dont fit right that have been replaced so id like to get rid of them... so should I just toss them in or do they need to be accounted for? sorry im still somewhat a noob lol

    We just throw them in a pile under a desk and one of the OMS folks will box them up and eventually ship them off. They don't seem to pay attention to if we bring old ones back when we order new ones. Its best to order at the beginning of the month before the Center's monthly uniform budget runs out.

    Probably depends on your center.

    Way back in pre-history when I started, we had to turn an item in before we got a new item.

    By the time I retired, nobody cared. I hauled three 50-gallon trash bags of old uniform crap back after I left. They weren't happy.

    Polyester stinks when it burns.

    I preferred letting them deal with it.

    Too much hassle.

    Dumping three bags of garbage in the office was more fun.

    No one ever said anything to me about bringing them back. I use the old ones to work on the cars or when I paint.

    I could dress half our center with all the uniforms I have in my closet. But sadly I only wear 4 items of all of it.

    Wear the old ones while working in the yard or cleaning out the garage.
    Wear each one 2 or 3 Saturdays without washing.
    Once you have enough to fill a large garbage bag, put them in there.
    When full, tie up the top very secure so no air can get in.
    Let it sit a couple of weeks, to marinate all sealed up.
    THEN take it in and leave it on the Center Managers desk.
    Talk about a snootful of unpleasant air pollution when the bag is opened!

    When I left, I kept one helper jacket (kinda stole, err, appropriated), one boonie hat (had to fight for that), one hoodie (safety award we weren't supposed to wear) and one polo I had bought back in the day.

    I still had at least that much I hauled back and dumped in the office.

    You need to order 3 each time to see how many will bust or not fit right. When the uniforms were made by Riverside they were quality, now they are just disposable ponchos.

    Wow, I have like 5 I keep in the rotation. We were them till they are threadbare, at that point they no longer feel like you're wearing complete crap.

    That's close to what I had when I retired. Burned them all in my retirement party bon-fire.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I have 3 sets of summer and winter.

    We are required to turn in the old ones before they will hand us the new ones.
