The Surplus Property and Recycling Annex accepts used and obsolete furniture and equipment from schools and offices and determines the appropriate disposition (i.e., discard, sell at auction, recycle). Truck Operations provides services for the pick up and transfer of salvage furniture and equipment to the Annex. Items that can be auctioned are auctioned through Public Surplus.

Each school or office will be allowed one large surplus property pick-up (approximately 10 pallets of material) per school year. Additional large pick-up requests must be funded by the school or the office.

Each school or office may have 10 small item requests for surplus property pick-up annually. Items must be small, able to be loaded by one person, and limited to less than one pallet-sized load. Items should be placed at a ground level location that is accessible by truck.

On average, a surplus property pick-up request will be completed by Truck Operations within three weeks of original date submitted.
