The department may use tangible personal property reimbursed by the fund in other remedial actions, store such property until needed, maintain the property, or sell or dispose of such property in a manner beneficial to the fund. Any proceeds from the sale or disposal of such property shall be remitted to the State Treasurer for credit to the fund.
