Collection and Disposal
If any SALW is confiscated, seized or collected it will either be taken as state property or be destroyed, depending on circumstances.
Detonation is used to destroy UXOs, obsolete SALW, ammunitions, and other hazardous explosives. About 700 tons of such ordnance was obliterated during the past 12 years.
