Salvaging is the term used to refer to executions in the Republic of Gilead . Those who are executed are referred to as having been 'Salvaged'.

The executions of women are held in public and presided over by the Aunts . Handmaids have to sit in the center of a lawn near the stage where the 'Salvagings' take place and are forced to participate. Women criminals are usually hanged. Women can be executed for crimes such as adultery or the murder of Handmaids. It is implied that women who are to be executed are drugged beforehand to keep them from causing trouble. Handmaids, and possibly other women in attendance, are not given breakfast prior to attending a Salvaging, which is done from practicality, as the sight can cause the women to throw up.

Handmaids are given the rope used to hang the condemned and pull altogether, thus sharing in the 'duty' of executing those who commit crimes against the regime. Offred states that the Aunts used to announce for what crimes the women are being executed for; however, they stopped doing this due to the fact it seemed to encourage a spate of similar crimes.
