Mission Statement

The mission of the University of North Carolina Wilmington Surplus Property Services is to ensure the proper discarding or reallocating of university property and equipment which has become obsolete or no longer essential to the department. Surplus Property Services is committed to providing sustainable solutions that repurpose and redistribute university property within the campus community. Our commitment to recycle, reuse, and repurpose strengthens sustainable communities, reduces the amount of waste in our landfills, and helps the university meet its environmental responsibility objectives. 


Surplus Property

What is Surplus Property?

Surplus Property encompasses all university property no longer in use by a university department. University departments transfer all property and equipment to Surplus Property as soon as it is determined that the property is no longer needed. Departments are not authorized to transfer or sell any state property, except to other university departments. Departments may not sell, discard or give away state property, nor is it to be used for personal use.

Property not re-assigned to university departments is disposed of, according to guidelines of the NC State Surplus Property Agency.
