The City of Houston's Asset Disposition Team generated over $1.6M in FY2012 by selling the City's disposable assets via the Internet at www.publicsurplus.com.
The revenue generated from these sales goes back into the City's budget. Most of the $1.6M can be attributed to the sales of the City's retired vehicles and heavy equipment fleet.
In addition to the direct efforts of the Asset Disposition team, every City Department has become proactive in supporting the Mayor's initiative to develop innovative ways to recycle resources back to the City without burdening local taxpayers.
Our vision is to become a self-supporting and revenue-producing source of funds for the City's General Fund.
