Turn-in Excess Property

Excess property to be processed

What is Excess & Salvage?

When government property is deemed “excess” to the needs of the property custodian and the division, the property is sent to Excess & Salvage.  Upon receipt, the property is made available for reutilization to Department of Energy agencies and other Federal government contractors, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations.
