WARPit reuse scheme

+ more

Get involved with reducing the amount of waste produced by the University and help your department to reduce its purchasing and disposal costs by using WARPit (Waste Action Reuse Portal).

By registering to use the University’s WARPit account a department can post or claim otherwise unwanted items to and from other University departments. The most popular items are office furniture and office supplies but there is so much more.

The system is for University of Oxford property only and items can only be claimed by other University departments.  The system is not for personal use.

To register sign up here or for more information take a virtual tour.

We regret that colleges cannot register to use the University of Oxford account but may contact WARPit to set up their own.
