ReUse at Salford

We are now members of WARP-IT (Waste Action Reuse Portal), a redistribution network, which works in a similar way to Ebay or Freecycle but for organisations rather than individuals.

WARP-it makes it easy for departments to give away, loan or claim items unwanted by others within the organisation and beyond.

The scheme encourages reuse, saves money and carbon.

What items can be reused through Warp It?

Mostly reusable furniture, fixtures and fittings, office consumables (such as stationery and ink jet cartridges), but any resource really. As long as it is legal it can be transferred. It is not possible at present to offer electrical items so please contact your Building Manager to discuss sustainable disposal of these items.

What now?

If you have any surplus in your office get it added to the system, or if you are buying something this week search Warp It to make sure someone else does not have it spare!
