When the Special Areas Board no longer requires goods they have used, the goods are sent to the Government of Alberta’s Surplus Sales department to be sold to the public.

Surplus Sales has locations in Edmonton and Calgary where surplus goods are sold to the public to earn the best financial return possible for the Board. These goods are sold through Alberta Online Auction, cash & carry sales, public auctions or public tenders. All items are sold on “as is, where is” basis. There are no warranties of any kind. Purchasers are urged to inspect items for condition and suitability prior to bidding.

Current and future sales information is available from the Surplus Sales website or at their offices in Edmonton or Calgary.
