The Salt Lake Community College Surplus Department sells used computers, vehicles, electronic equipment, office furniture and just about anything else that you would see on any of the campuses. The department receives hundreds of items that are brought from all of the SLCC campuses to be recycled and sold.
Every time SLCC remodels a section in a building or tear down a building, they save everything they can and recycled it through the Surplus Department.
The Surplus Department sales are open to the public on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at 4365 South 2200 West, Building 104 on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. On Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the sales take place at 165 West 2700 South.
“The college wants to recycle everything useable they can,” said Troy Walker, recycling supervisor.
The Surplus Department receives hundreds of items each week. The items are sorted through and inspected to see what can be saved and recycled and then sold at decent price at the surplus sales they hold each week. It does not matter if an item is old or new. Some items that come in are from the 1970s. The department can revive the item and it can be used again. Lost and found items, after fifteen to thirty days, will get sent over to the Surplus Department, and after one hundred and twenty days, the item goes up for sale.
Items that sometimes will not be sold include medical equipment that can be given to a charity. First these items are given a clean bill of health to make sure they are all in working order and up to standards. Medical gloves and syringes are also given to charity and then sent to third world countries.
Any items that are not useable are picked up by a scrap vendor who then tries to use the items for other purposes.
