Bidders can view items in person during the weeks of active auctions at the District’s fleet management facility but need to schedule appointments in advance weekdays between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 630-580-7100
Since beginning online auctions in 2013 the District has taken in more than $1.7 million in 1,334 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 to visitors.”
