The College must periodically dispose of materials and equipment which are considered to be surplus or obsolete to the College’s needs. The Purchasing Department coordinates the removal of surplus and obsolete items in accordance with Education Code by the following procedure:
  1. ​Departments may request removal of surplus or obsolete equipment by completing the form “Request for Removal of District Owned Surplus/Obsolete Equipment” and emailing it to the Purchasing Department after having obtained the necessary approvals.

  2. The Purchasing Department will circulate a list of surplus equipment to District Managers to ascertain whether or not the item may have a functional use within another Department prior to removal.

  3. The District utilizes a registered e-waste collecting auction company to auction off all surplus/obsolete equipment which is not retained by the District.​
