I am having trouble finding an appropriate word for the following situation:
I have a group of objects which require certain actions to be performed on them. Before performing any action on any of the objects, I assess each one and determine which action will be performed.
The action at issue is "disposal", where I am looking to say that certain objects have been "pegged for disposal".
Specifically, the word "pegged" troubles me here as it seems almost conversational, whereas the affectation I am going for is more business-oriented.
- "Marked for disposal" is out of the question as no marking has been made, simply an act of judgement having passed.
- "Requiring disposal" also does not fit the bill as the objects themselves do not require disposal. It is not an assessment of their state but rather a judgement that has been passed upon them.
- "Selected for disposal" seems to assume that the main action we are here to perform is disposal when in fact it is but one of several possibilities.
I am looking to avoid changes of the noun to an adjective, i.e. "objects deemed disposable" as this changes the meaning of the phrase as with the earlier example of "requiring".
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
