InterSchola's online auctions provide market-based solution for schools to convert trash into cash

San Francisco, January 12, 2011 — InterSchola is pleased to announce that it has been declared a certified green business by the city and county of San Francisco. Green business certification of InterSchola's San Francisco headquarters is consistent with the company's greater vision for environmental sustainability. With InterSchola's mission to reduce waste and give back to schools through the sale of no longer needed surplus assets, the business has helped divert 2-3 million pounds per year from landfills since its founding in 2004.

InterSchola facilitates the sale of used goods to help cash-strapped school districts and other public agencies generate revenue. Whether selling surplus buses from one school district to another at an affordable price, finding new uses for used food service equipment for small, local businesses or finding a buyer for a 24-foot planetarium dome to use for an inner city afterschool program, InterSchola provides a unique service that considers the triple bottom line — people, planet and profits. Since its founding, InterSchola has sold almost $10M worth of surplus goods to the community and generated millions of dollars in funds for public institutions.

"By extending the lifecycle of used goods, it's in our company DNA to conserve resources," explains President and Founder Melissa Rich. "Receiving this seal of approval from San Francisco, a city nationally known for its environmental leadership, is an honor and will be recognized by our clients and prospects as InterSchola continues to market our valuable service to school districts and other local public agencies in California and in several other states."

News of the green business certification caps a year of milestones for the social enterprise. With InterSchola's recent expansion into Florida by signing Collier County school district as a client, the company now serves nearly 400 school districts in six states, including one-third of all districts in California, as well as schools in Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. In October, InterSchola was named one of the Bay Area's 100 fastest growing private companies.

InterSchola was established in 2004 to help school districts with surplus inventory realize the value of these assets while at the same time freeing up expensive storage space and valuable staff resources. InterSchola's unique model is designed to eliminate the headaches associated with surplus disposal by managing the public auction process from start to finish and ensures compliance with complex legal Education Codes. Items sold have ranged from pianos to portable buildings, from computers to cars, and from food service to facility equipment. InterSchola has returned millions of dollars to schools, districts and other local public agencies and has helped save countless more dollars previously spent on staff, storage and surplus disposal costs.
