Surplus property is tangible property that is no longer of use to any County department because it is obsolete, uneconomical to repair, or valued only for its base contents. Surplus property may include anything from office supplies and furniture to vehicles and heavy equipment.
Before releasing any surplus property, the County of San Luis Obispo makes every attempt to reuse and/or reassign the property to another department within the County.
General surplus property and vehicles are periodically sold online at Public Surplus.
Unclaimed and stolen items found during criminal investigations by the Sheriff’s Office are auctioned on a website called Property Room. This site specializes in Police and Sheriff Departments unclaimed items.
