WSRA Tour - Repurpose, Reuse and Recycle; the Washington State Surplus Operation
June 28, 2018 | Tour 8:15 AM - 11:00 AM, Optional Networking to Follow

Feeling a little down about recycling lately? Let’s focus on waste prevention and reuse! After all, it’s the top priority in the materials management hierarchy. The Washington State Surplus Operation is an excellent reuse and waste prevention service right here in our state.

Learn first-hand how government agencies, non-profits and the general public can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars by taking advantage of this surplus service that takes reusable items from cities, counties and the state and resells them to other agencies, non-profits and the general public. The store and online auction feature everything from furniture and electronics to pianos and vehicles! Did you know that the State Surplus operation is where you’ll find TSA confiscated items for sale? It’s the place to go if you need a pocket knife!

WSRA will get a guided tour before the public store opens up so register today! This event is perfect for recycling coordinators and those in charge of surplus and/or purchasing at public agencies, so tell your colleague!
