State agencies, municipalities, and non-profits can buy surplus equipment and furniture from the State Surplus Property Office (SSPO) for a nominal administrative fee. The SSPO is part of the Operational Services Division (OSD), the state's procurement agency, and manages the distribution of usable state property from all state agencies. By redistributing unwanted equipment, the Commonwealth reduces its disposal and operating costs.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection is closing four (4) auto shops and various types of auto center equipment, including a dynamometer, auto lifts, and other related items, will be offered for transfer to State and local public entities for free. Attend an open house to view and reserve equipment:
