Reuse at Salford

We are members of WARP-IT (Waste Action Reuse Portal), a redistribution network that 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. You can see our latest performance here

Have a look at the waste pages to see how else you can help the environment by following the waste hierarchy. 

Easy-Access Training

WARPIt webinars are quick online tutorials which you can attend from your desk. See here for the next session.

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 items in your office get them 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!
