As a large local government, Fairfax County Government generates a wide variety of surplus equipment. The Department of Purchasing and Supply Management (DPSM) ensures responsible disposal of this equipment.
What is responsible disposal? We think it is a balance of
- donating to charities who further our mission
- selling our surplus equipment using online, live and sealed bid auctions
- trading in equipment back to our contracted vendors, including ‘producer responsibility’ or take-back clauses in new contracts to enhance recycling options
- dealing with waste intelligently by recycling e-waste, toner cartridges, scrap metal, used tires and spent oil
Through this “toolbox” of options, we positively impact our
environment by reducing waste and improve the County’s bottom line by
cutting disposal costs and increasing revenue.
DPSM maintains a ‘toolbox’ of contracted options. For more information about these contracts and how we operate, contact Tyler Carey, program administrator at 703-658-3801 or DPSM Surplus
