Every item stored at the Lost & Found office is assigned with a registration number and tagged with a label showing the place it was found, the date it was received by the lost property office and its description file number.

Lost items are stored in a special dry facility, packed in plastic bags and boxes. Items found on the same day are put in one bag and marked with a label to make the search easier. Unclaimed items are stored by the lost property office for six (6) months and after that can be disposed of.
