The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders has announced that the 2020 Monmouth County fall surplus auction will begin at 9 a.m. Oct. 24 and continue through 6 p.m. Oct. 27.
“Monmouth County owns vehicles and equipment which are no longer in use by the county,” Freeholder Dominick DiRocco said. “The online surplus auction for the county is a tremendous way to bring in revenue that will directly save taxpayers money.”
Surplus items from the county’s Fleet Services, Reclamation Center, Buildings and Grounds, Parks, Sheriff’s Office and Prosecutor’s Office will be sold, according to a press release.
Items for sale may be inspected between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 by appointment only.
To schedule an appointment at the Monmouth County Reclamation Center, 6000 Asbury Ave., Tinton Falls, contact John Jackowski at 732-890-5191.
To schedule an appointment at the Department of Public Works and Engineering Complex, 250 Center St., Freehold, contact Mark Pajor at 732-431-7290, ext. 7299.
Face coverings are required and all COVID-19 state laws and regulations will be adhered to while on county property.
For any questions, bidders may contact the Monmouth County Division of Fleet Services at 732-431-7830 for the representative, Dennis Szostek, at ext. 4891.
“Conducting the auction online allows participants from other states to bid on our surplus,” Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone said. “Having the auction online not only generates more bidders, but also helps cut back on staffing for set-up and security, resulting in savings on labor costs.”
Successful bidders will be able to pick up their item or items between Oct. 29 and Nov. 6, except on weekends and holidays, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. by appointment only.
