(March 17, 2022) — Bid on vehicles, equipment and more at govdeals.com/dupageforest and govedeals.com/dupagegolf in a series of DuPage Forest Preserve District online auctions running at various times throughout the year.

The District’s auction of surplus and unclaimed items includes vehicles, trailers, landscape and construction equipment, office items, bicycles, electronics, and unclaimed personal property. These items will be sold at govdeals.com/dupageforest, an online government auction site. Golf course maintenance equipment will be sold at govdeals.com/dupagegolf. Photos and details are posted on the respective GovDeals auction pages.

GovDeals auction pages are only active during live auctions. Links to the District’s pages can be found at dupageforest.org/news/auction-updates.

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.”

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.
