e-End was chosen to provide secure and onsite destruction of a large quantity of long guns, handguns and miscellaneous contraband that was confiscated from by the agency from criminals. The onsite destruction consisted of destroying the weapons by shearing them into pieces -- with the shearing always done to destroy the breach area and firing mechanism.
Following shearing, the weapons are then shredded off site. Some smaller items, such as knifes, brass knuckles, and swords and gun magazines are shredded on site.
All material is then sent to a smelter and is melted down to its raw material form.
