Lost Items, Surplus Sales

December 23, 2016

With about 18 million travelers using Portland International Airport each year, some things get lost.

Travelers and airport workers are encouraged to report and turn in all lost items to the PDX Lost and Found Office.

When a lost item is turned in to our lost and found team, we do our very best to reunite the item with its owner. While we are able to reconnect thousands of items each year with their owners, some items go unclaimed. After retaining items for 30-90 days, we post them on the GovDeals auction website in compliance with state protocols for handling lost property. The revenue generated from the sale of the item is then used to help support our operation.
