Surplus Materials

Surplus materials are equipment, furniture and supplies that were purchased with university funds and are no longer required. We dispose of these items through a process administered by the Procurement Department in conjunction with the university policies and procedures.

Financial and sustainability benefits will be delivered through procedures that maximize the opportunity for reuse of items and minimize the amount of material that enters the waste stream. 

It is important to remember surplus and obsolete material are property of Dalhousie University, and shall be disposed of in a manner that is environmentally sustainable.  View Disposal Instructions (login to myDal is required) for more information. 

Surplus items sold will give internal requirements precedence over external requests. Departments wishing to obtain any items on this website are required to complete and submit a bid form.
