Instructions for University Departments
How to Request a Surplus Pickup
Any surplus item: (e.g. furniture, computers, equipment, miscellaneous items) University departments must submit a FAMIS Service Request on-line at the Physical Plant website. Go to How to Request Services for details. After we receive your request, the UVM Surplus/Recycling team will pick up your items and determine whether they are suitable for resale, scrap, recycling or disposal. Departments are charged a nominal hauling fee for pick up and/or disposal of surplus items from their office.
Appliances, Laboratory Equipment and Movable Equipment: University departments must fill out a Surplus Disposal Form for each individual item, in addition to submitting the FAMIS Self-Serve Request. Departments must download and complete this form for appliances, laboratory equipment and movable equipment. (This form is not required for furniture and computer equipment.) Complete the form, make a copy. Attach one copy to the item and send original copy to UVM Surplus via campus mail, fax or email. For more information on procedures, please phone Surplus/Recycling at 656-5731 or email <email@example.com>
Computers and CPU's: University departments are required to remove all data and software from their computers prior to pickup.

(Note: You will need at UVM netid and password to log in to this site).
