The Enterprise Services Surplus Operations program leads the state’s efforts to redistribute items state agencies, local governments and public organizations no longer need. Although agencies may no longer need these items they may still have usefulness and can be purchased by other government organizations or the public. This allows the state to save taxpayer dollars and resources by extending the life of items and minimizes the amount of waste sent to landfills.

To get your organization started in using government item disposal please email surplusdisposal@des.wa.gov to verify your agency or organizations eligibility status and next steps.

Part of the Department of Enterprise Services, Surplus Operations operates under the statutory authority of Revised Code of Washington 43.19.1919.
