Surplus Management & Central Storage

Mission Statement

Our mission at UC Surplus Management is to always follow the principles of 'reduce, reuse, recycle' and at the same time, continually strive to find solutions that best serve the entire University of Cincinnati community.

About Us

The Surplus Management Department serves the university community in all matters relating to the proper handling of all end of life cycle assets. Our process is based on following all applicable procedures, regulations and best practices for the proper disposal of assets.

Our services to UC include:

  • Pick up of all excess surplus at no cost to the departments.  This is made possible in conjunction with our internal teammates at UC Moving Services 
  • Encouraging all departments to reuse assets at no cost from Surplus Management wherever possible through our FTD - Free to Departmets program. This includes free delivery to your location by another UC work partner - UC Central Receiving
  • Offering the university the opportunity to reduce our green footprint by accepting virtuall all recyclables. These include all metals, toners and cartridges, computer components, all battery types, specific plastics, cell phones, data tapes, discs, books and many more recyclables. Please also note that secure recycling, specifically all hard drives, data tapes, disks, etc are shredded on site in our secure area.
  • We also offer long term storage for UC departments in a climate controlled, highly secure Fishwick facility at a great rate.
