    • Maximize surplus operational benefits to UW-Stout campus departments.
    • Provide opportunities for reuse of surplus items by UW-Stout campus departments.
    • Provide opportunities for the general public to purchase surplus property at public sales.
    • Provide a centralized recycling location for all types of batteries and printer cartridges.
    • Be a responsible environmental steward for the campus by finding reuse and recycling markets for surplus property.
    • Attempt to create a "zero" waste surplus operation.
