Faculty & Staff Shopping Hours

Due to our involvement with Homecoming Events, there will be no Surplus Shopping on Friday, September 16th.

Surplus Shopping is open at the offsite warehouse every Friday from 10am to 12pm.

Contact Alan Winkler at winkleja@nullwfu.edu for any questions.

Please keep in mind that the Surplus Department assists with many different aspects of campus life. At several different times throughout the year, our department is extremely busy. While we always try to meet the needs of our customers who make short-notice requests, sometimes it is just not possible. If you need particular services executed within one week of your request, please reach out to the Surplus Manager, Alan Winkler (winkleja@nullwfu.edu), to verify that we have the availability to meet your needs. Thank you!

  • Surplus Overview

    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.

  • Surplus History

    Since the Surplus Program began in 2011 . . .

    • Over 8,000 individual items having been repurposed and reused within WFU Departments.
    • Over 17,000 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 261 Tons have been recycled through the WFU Surplus Program.
    • Electronic and electrical items collected and responsibly recycled have amounted to over 58 Tons for equipment diverted from landfills.

    That’s over 1,080 Tons of merchandise repaired, recycled, re-purposed, re-used and diverted from the landfill!

  • Surplus Services

    We offer the following surplus property services:

    • Collection of surplus furniture (desks, chairs, tables, etc.), office supplies, and equipment (laboratory equipment, etc.)
    • Delivery of surplus to departments upon request
    • E-Waste recycling

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