The WFU Surplus Property Program collects property from departments that no longer need it and redistributes it to departments that do need it. Our primary goal is to maximize reuse of University property and minimize the quantity of property that ends up in our landfills.

Since the Surplus Program began in 2011 . . .

  • Over 3000 individual items having been repurposed and reused within WFU Departments.
  • Over 3600 individual items having been gifted to local charitable organizations or otherwise moved into the community to continue their useful life.
  • Additionally, metal items with no further re-usefulness totaling over 54 Tons have been recycled through the WFU Surplus Program.
  • Electronic and electrical items collected and responsibly recycled have amounted to over 14.7 tons for equipment diverted from landfills.

That’s over 317 Tons of merchandise repaired, recycled, re-purposed, re-used and diverted from the landfill!

We offer the following surplus property services:

  • Collection of surplus furniture (desks, chairs, tables, etc.) and equipment (laboratory equipment, etc.)
  • Delivery of surplus to departments upon request
  • Technotrash recycling

Note: Do not throw broken property in the trash! Have Surplus Property pick it up instead.
