Surplus Warehouses reopened at UIC and UIUC

UAFR is pleased to announce the equipment surplus warehouses at both UIC and UIUC have now reopened and are accepting scrap/surplus equipment from university departments.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, new safety and health related procedures and protocols over the handling of scrap/surplus equipment and access to the surplus warehouse are effective immediately. 

Key new protocols include:

  • disinfecting scrap/surplus equipment prior to shipment to the surplus warehouse (either by the unit or the campus movers with procedures varying by university) 
  • an appointment only scheduling system to access the UIUC surplus warehouse 

Units must review the new required safety procedures and protocols for each specific campus at the Surplus Warehouse Operations - OBFS website.

For questions about surplus warehouse operations or the new protocols, contact Magdalena Jach at or (312) 585-9171.

For questions about specific FABweb disposal requests, please contact Juana Rodriquez at or (312) 585-9146.
