What is it?

Surplus Goods are items or materials that are no longer needed or useful.  They may be obsolete equipment, excess supplies, furniture, or other items that are in good condition but there is no longer a need for them.  Surplus Goods can be sold, donated, recycled or disposed of depending on the circumstances.

Why is it important?

The management of Surplus Goods is important for potential cost savings, reducing waste and minimizing the university’s environmental impact.  The CUrb provides a program for campus departments to sell and purchase Surplus Goods.  You are encouraged to improve Carleton’s environmental footprint by purchasing reusable goods whenever possible.

Where do I find more information?

For more information (including guidelines and procedures on how to list and purchase an item), visit Procurement Services’ the CUrb site, or email ProcurementServices@carleton.ca.
