Disposing of Surplus Furniture and Equipment
A reminder from University Facilities Management to faculty and staff that Kent State University has a redistribution website as a means to transfer unwanted or surplus office furniture and equipment to other departments. Posting and claiming departmental item(s) at https://solutions.kent.edu/surplus/ is free for university employees.
There is currently no designated on-campus storage for surplus furniture and equipment, and there are many costs associated with the addition and removal of new university property. Instead of removing items for disposal, departments are asked to post to the website first. Additionally, employees are encouraged to check the website before purchasing new operational supplies for their departments.
Posted item(s) will remain available until claimed, up to a period of 30 days. Item(s) may then be posted to GovDeals with the help of the university’s procurement department. Items sold to the public earn funds back to the seller’s department. Remember, what is useless to one person is valuable to another.
