Public Surplus

The City of University Place uses the online auction service offered by Public Surplus,, to facilitate the auction of its surplus equipment. Public Surplus is a free service to the City and is used by government entities across the country to efficiently and fairly dispose of items of value that are no longer in use. Several times per year we will post items that were recently approved for surplus. These items may include vehicles, computer equipment, electronics and many other items.

All auction items will be held open for up to 28 days and sold to the highest bidder. Please read the City’s terms and conditions before placing a bid. If you are interested in reviewing items currently available for auction, please visit and follow directions on the site. Be sure to check back periodically for additional postings as they become available.
