The Swap Meet is provided to the University of Hawaii community as a means to connect departments with surplus materials and equipment. This service is intended to enable transfers only and is not to be used to sell or purchase goods.
UH usernames are required to post information to the Swap Meet. Messages are sent directly to the poster through this site, so names and contact information are confidential. You can also add/remove yourself to/from the mailing list by logging in and modifying your preferences in the "My Account" section.
All items expire from the public Swap Meet after 30 days. If you find/transfer an item before the 30 day limit, login and update the items status so that no further inquiries are sent to you. Expired items will display in your account (but not the public Swapmeet) for 5 days after expiration.
This swap meet is a means to connect departments with surplus materials and equipment. It is up to the individual departments to arrange for the transfer. Please follow the University of Hawaii Property and Equipment Transfer and Retirement procedures, including getting departmental authorization to transfer the item - this ensures inventories are current. State departments may also participate as long as the proper equipment transfer procedures are followed. Questions regarding transfer procedures should be directed to your department's administrative or fiscal officer.
Additional information exists in the guidelines for disposal of obsolete computer equipment. If you are dealing with hazardous materials, please review the hazardous chemical redistribution and exchange procedures.
