Surplus Property

Tagged College property should never placed in the trash or recycling by Departments. Property removal should always be done by, or in conjunction with, the Property Control Office, with the necessary signed documentation (PDF). Removing surplus property from the campus for private or any other use is strictly prohibited. This includes taking property already designated for disposal or recycling.

Campus Furniture & Equipment Reuse

Would you like to furnish your campus space with a table, chair, desk, stool or bookshelf? Perhaps you need a filing cabinet! Our Property Control Assistant, Deb Snyder, may have exactly what you are looking for. Deb manages our surplus property on campus, which creates the opportunity for a thrift store-like experience. Except, this thrift store is free for campus use! Contact Deb for more information and to see what items are available.

Scrap Computers and Electronics

All surplus computers and electronics in poor or scrap condition are recycled using certified electronics recyclers. At no time are these items to be placed in the trash. As a general rule, if it has a plug, recycle it. Please contact Deb Snyder for more details or to request a pickup.

Surplus Process

ESF is a state agency, therefore it must follow NYS Office of General Services (OGS) regulations for surplus property. The process is outlined below:

  1. Faculty/staff member no longer has use for furniture/equipment. That individual contacts their Departmental Property Control Designee (see list below)

  2. Departmental Property Control Designee contacts Deb Snyder, Property Control Officer

  3. Deb assess furniture/equipment and sends photos to all Departmental Property Control Designees

  4. Designees send photos to members of their Department to see if anyone has use for items.

  5. If there is a use for an item/s, Designee alerts Deb Snyder and item/s are moved

  6. If there is no use for item/s on campus, Deb contacts other SUNY schools to see if they have use

  7. If other SUNYs do not have need, Deb sends photos to OGS State Surplus Property for inclusion on the State's Ebay Store

  8. If item/s do not sell, ESF is issued a Local Disposition Authorization (LDA)

  9. ESF is then able to recycle or dispose of item
