Government Liquidation has auctioned off 47.6 million pounds of recycled asphalt that was generated from pulverized roads and runways at the Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska. Additionally, the auction included 26,000 pounds of used cooking grease that was generated from meals cooked on base.

According to Government Liquidation, which provides an exclusive auction and sales channel for the Department of Defense, the auction is the largest scrap auction with respect to weight in the company’s history.

The cooking grease can be converted to a biodiesel fuel for an alternative fuel or diesel vehicle, while the recycled asphalt can be used for road or parking lot resurfacing.

Government Liquidation, a Liquidity Services Inc. marketplace, is the exclusive contractor of the DLA Disposition Services for the sale of surplus and scrap assets of the United States Department of Defense. More information is available at
