Surplus Auction Website
Announcement! As a valued participant of The Forest Preserve District of DuPage Countyís yearly auctions of surplus vehicles and equipment, we would like to personally invite you to our new on-line auction hosted by GovDeals.com, a government surplus marketplace.
Update December 2013 The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County held 4 on-line auctions, selling retired vehicles & equipment through Govdeals.com during the months of August, September and October raising a net profit of $114,899.80. Buyers came from 16 states including Illinois with the farthest coming from North Carolina, Virginia, Nebraska, Georgia & Oklahoma. We even had one sale from Canada! Our list is now posted on this site of all the items sold and their sales prices. On October 16th we held a live local auction at Auctions by Jennifer in Carol Stream selling the smaller, garage sale type items that accumulate throughout the District, mostly from lost & found from the preserves. These items included bicycles, miscellaneous tools, knives, coolers, fishing equipment as well as items no longer used at District locations like desks, chairs, and overstocked items from gift shops. These items netted the District an additional $790.00.
Please continue to watch this site for upcoming auctions, both on-line and live beginning in April, 2014. Dates to be determined and lists to be added as approved by the Districtís Board in February/March 2014. Thank you for your continued support of our auction sales!
