District Surplus Rules

Please fill out the Surplus List Form and email it to Denny Austin .

Purchasing will only accept the electronic version saved as an Excel file (Please - no typed, hand written or scanned forms).

In the column titled“Reason for Disposal”, you will need to choose one of the following:

  1. Obsolete – out dated

  2. Surplus – this item is in useable condition

  3. Broken – not safe or useable

Once we receive your file and the Board declares it surplus -- only then will a pick up be scheduled.

Please note: Surplus is not a priority and will be picked up as time allows.
