Disposal Process Overview

The Ministry of Central Services is responsible for the disposition of supplies for the Government of Saskatchewan.

Vehicles and Equipment

Central Services typically conducts vehicle and equipment sales on a monthly basis opening on the second Wednesday and closing at 10:00 A.M. sharp on the third Wednesday of each month. Items are sold using a bid process. Sales are typically advertised in the four major Saskatchewan daily newspapers with additional details included on the SaskSurplus Website. The public is invited to view the items for sale and if interested in bidding on an item they should complete a “Bid Form” in accordance with the terms and conditions of that sale. The vehicles and equipment are available for viewing at designated sites (per advertisement) or bidders can view a photo on the SaskSurplus Website.

Office furnishings

Office furnishings and typical office equipment no longer needed by government organizations are donated by the Government of Saskatchewan to community based organizations in the province through the Community Donations Program. The program enables government organizations to recycle useful furnishings and donate them to assist community organizations in the valuable work they do to strengthen our communities and our province. Community organizations can find free furnishings that are available in their city or local area and easily pick them up without incurring expensive delivery charges. Visit the Community Donations Website (www.communitydonations.ca) for complete details and to register your organization for this program. Some surplus office furniture and equipment is also sold through the SaskSurplus Sale program.

Other surplus items

Other surplus items and equipment is also sold using a bid process. These items will be advertised on the Central Services Website (www.sasksurplus.ca). Occasionally, if required, the government may use other sales methods such as an auction, which will be advertised in a number of Saskatchewan based newspapers.
