Claiming Items

Choose the Category

The first step to claiming items is to choose the category of the items you wish to claim. Choose the Claim tab (upper left hand side of the screen) and use the search link. This will display a list of matching categories from which you can select your category. You will then be presented with the list of available items. If you know the lot or item number you can also enter that directly.

Hint: If the desired category currently has no items available, or no items that you wish to claim, you can also use the category search screen to register for notification in a specific category. This means that you will receive email when new items become available in a category. Enter the name of the category, click the Search button then click Notify next to the category. 

Claim the Items

You can go through the list of available items and choose those that you wish to claim. Check the Claim box of the item or items that you want then click the Submit button. This will take you to the next step. 

Arrange Pickup

When you have completed claiming the items, it is up to you to arrange transfer of the items. The summary screen will display the contact information for each of the lots in which you claimed items. You should get in touch with the indicated person and arrange a mutually convenient date and time. 
The summary screen also contains information on the item locations.

You will need to sign the donation paperwork at pickup.  

The paperwork states that:  THIS CERTIFIES THAT STATE SURPLUS PROPERTY WAS DONATED TO YOUR POLITICAL SUB-DIVISION OR NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION AND WILL BE DISPOSED OF BY YOU UNDER ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND CONDITIONS AT END OF USE.

When you are ready to dispose of the electronics, you must refer to the DEEP website to find an approved electronics recycler to properly dispose of these items.
