Since beginning online auctions in 2013 the District has taken in more than $1.3 million in 1,278 transactions and attracted buyers from 43 states, three Canadian provinces and Guatemala, District fleet manager Michael Webster said.
“These online auctions allow us to keep content out of landfills by repurposing it,” Webster said. “They also generate revenue to help offset the cost of providing programs and services for visitors.” The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County has been connecting people to nature for more than 100 years. More than 6.2 million people visit its 60 forest preserves, 166 miles of trails, six education centers and scores of programs each year.
