Surplus Property Procedures
A department must be registered in our software before items can be surplused. Once a department has registered, a Disposal Request should be created and completely filled out. After the disposal request has been authorized by the approving official, Surplus will pick your items up within 5 business days. However, if the request is during the week of the auction, it could take up to 14 business days.
If the item being surplussed or disposed of contains hazardous materials (i.e. oil, mercury, Freon, asbestos, lead, florescent bulbs, batteries, etc) the department is responsible for first contacting Environmental Health & Safety for an evaluation of the item. The item has to be cleared by EH&S before surplus will pick up.
NOTE:Surplus items containing hazardous materials will not be picked up without the approval of Environmental Health & Safety.
