Frederick County Government Offices are closed Friday, June 5, 2020. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our online Tax Payments and multiple Citizen Services. Get full information here:

We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to resolve the issues.

Surplus property consists of tangible personal property (e.g., equipment, materials, supplies, vehicles) that is left over after the needs for which it is acquired have been satisfied; and real property (i.e., real estate) that is no longer needed by the County.

The County classifies its surplus property as follows:
• Items with value for trade-in, intra-city transfer, and sale (via public auction or public sale at fixed prices)
• Items worn or broken with scrap material/metal value
• Items that have no commercial or scrap value and can be destroyed
• Real property that is no longer needed

The County has periodic auctions and sells surplus property items on the Public Surplus website. Note, this site will take you out of the County website. Any user may view the items for sale but only registered users of the third-party service (Public Surplus® Auction) may place a bid on selected items. To register for the Public Surplus service, visit the Public Surplus registration page.
