Need a firetruck, portable toilet seat or abandoned car? Annual Pittsburgh Airport auction returns

PITTSBURGH — Two years’ worth of items will be up for bid later this month at the Pittsburgh International Airport’s annual auction.

According to our partners at, the list of items includes:

  • A fire truck
  • Elf on the Shelf
  • A portable toilet seat
  • 9 abandoned vehicles
  • Runway plows
  • A rice cooker
  • A lava lamp
  • Nearly 1,000 pieces of jewelry
  • More than 500 electronics

Last year, the event was scaled down and was held virtually, leading to such a large number of items that need to go this year.

The Oct. 23 auction starts at 10 a.m. at the Heavy Equipment Building on Cargo Road.
