Vehicles, computers, office furniture, TVs, refrigerators, metal detectors and even marine radar and sonar equipment are just a few of the more than 600 lots of items up for bid at the state surplus property auction.

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) will host the surplus property auction Oct. 24 at its warehouse in Montgomery. The sale begins at 8 a.m. and continues until the last item is sold.

In addition to property no longer needed by state and federal agencies, ADECA acquires items abandoned voluntarily at several airports in the Southeast.

A photo ID and social security number or federal employee ID is needed to bid on items. Auction items can be inspected on-site from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

ADECA conducts public auctions about three times a year, but surplus items are available at any time to municipal and county governments, state agencies and qualified nonprofit organizations.

In addition to the surplus property program, ADECA administers an array of grant programs for law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, energy conservation, water resource management and recreation development.

The ADECA warehouse is located at at 4590 Mobile Highway.
