Surplus Property

Our office provides opportunities to reuse, repurpose, and recycle surplus items at UW-Stout.
In this Section

We're open for public viewing and sales every Thursday from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Visit us at 140 University Services Building and take a look around!

Online sale of items is not available. Removal of property by the new owner is to occur during the weekly open store day or by appointment.

To Surplus an Item

To surplus an item to our department, complete the Surplus Declaration Form and send to University Services, Room 142. Upon receipt, scheduling arrangements will be made to have the property picked up. Any department disassembling items for surplus must provide a picture of the item fully assembled.

To Reclaim Surplus Property

To reclaim a surplus item, complete the Surplus Property Request Form. Delivery arrangements will be made when the form is received. Campus departments may view and reclaim surplus property for departmental reuse (not for personal use) on Wednesdays from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. There will be no department viewing outside of this schedule.


We recycle all used printer cartridges and batteries on campus. Please send all used inkjet, LaserJet, and copier cartridges, along with any Alkaline and rechargeable batters to Surplus. All items can be sent to 142 University Services via campus mail.
