UNC Surplus takes any campus item that a department has outgrown or no longer uses and sells the usable merchandise to other campus departments, students, and to the public. Through a partnership with PowerHouse Recycling, Inc., of Salisbury, N.C., UNC surplus recycles an average of ten tons of computers and electronic waste per month, as well as 351 tons of scrap metal waste per month.
Items that are not reusable are recycled or disposed of responsibly. Items not sold are palletized and sent to the state surplus in Raleigh.
All items $500 or less!
