PROPERTY AND SALVAGE
The Property and Salvage Division is an organizational unit of the
Purchasing Department, and has primary responsibility for the following activities:
- the sale of personal property deemed surplus by the County of Alameda;
- the redistribution of surplus equipment among County departments;
- the relocation of County departments (subject to available resources);
- County-wide recycling coordination; and, contracts for sale of paper, scrap metal and other surplus materials and equipment.
Surplus Property serves as the depot for equipment and miscellaneous items no longer required by County departments. We act as the liaison or intermediary between departments that have articles which are not needed and departments that may find these discarded items useful. By effectively using this salvage service County Departments are able to achieve a greater utilization of the County's investment in capital equipment, and may make available some valuable office or shop space. Furthermore, those items deemed not useful to any County Department are sold at the highest bid price to recover as much of the County's investment as possible.
Most non-usable items (e.g., scrap metal or waste paper) are picked up at the County Department's location and disposed of as soon as possible to the highest bidder.
