Did any of you know that NYC sells the stuff they don't use?

lil pricey term :

City of New York may charge a sales tax of 8.875%.

Buyers Premium: A Buyers Premium of 9.5% will be added to the final sale price with a $1 minimum charge per auction for payment collections. This premium if applicable will be visible during the bidding process and added to the total bid.

Interesting find. My question is -- Why is some of it being auctioned? The barrels of oil, surely they could be used in any of the the city garbage trucks or buses?

They are probably old - decades in fact
