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 authorizd by the approving official,

  • Small items - Surplus will pick up within 5 business days.  However, if the request is during the week of the auction, it could take up to 14 business days. 
  • Large items - Department should contact John Garon at Dodge Moving & Storage at (314) 344-4300 Ext 215 or (cell) 636-443-9080.  Then department should contact George Brooks at 5379 or by Pager 314 245-1757 with a date and time Dodge Moving & Storage will arrive at the Surplus Building.

If there is not a need on campus for surplus items, they are offered for sale to the public. The form of these sales is primarily through public sales approximately every 2 weeks.
