UCSD Surplus Store: Repurpose, Refurbish, Recycle, Resell


Treasures await at the UC San Diego Surplus Store, the end-of-life destination for excess university materials.

From UC San Diego Today, June 25, 2024: A headstone. A used airplane propeller. The dashboard of a Lincoln Navigator. A pristine, mint-green filing cabinet from 1963. The common link binding this motley collection together? They all found their home at the Surplus Store, UC San Diego’s end-of-life destination for excess university materials.

Surplus Sales is the campus’ one-stop-shop for transforming trash into treasure and waste into value. The extensive operation collects excess materials, property and waste from around campus and refurbishes and resells it to the university and broader community. As one of UC San Diego’s largest sustainability programs, Surplus diverts nearly two million pounds of waste from landfills every year — a far cry from its humble beginnings in 1983.

Starting in July, Surplus Sales will move from appointment-only access to regular walk-in hours five days a week, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
