Reuse and recycle with WARPit

Are you looking for a good home for unwanted items?

WarpIT  Or is your department in need of office or lab equipment, but you don't want to pay for new? Then look no further than WARPit (Waste Action Reuse Portal), the University's new re-use system.

WARPit is a web-based system that offers University staff the opportunity to search for items being given away for free by other departments or to find new homes for their unwanted items. Not only do you reduce both purchasing and waste disposal costs, but you also help the environment.

WARPit was launched just a month ago, but there are already 1,600 items online waiting to be snapped up. You can use it for small items such as stationery as well as large items such as office furniture and lab equipment. And if you can’t find what you need, just add the item to your wish list and WARPit will alert you when the item is added to the system.

Find out more and sign up to the new system by visiting the Environmental Sustainability website or by emailing sustainability@admin.ox.ac.uk.
