WARPit is an online portal which makes it easy for University staff to share surplus items such as furniture and office consumables with other University staff.
Many unwanted items are often thrown out, however WARPit makes transfer of ownership quick and easy due to better communication. If you have an item you no longer require, please advertise it on WARPit. Or, if you are looking for an item, please check WARPit before you buy new!
WARPit will help limit the amount of waste the University sends to landfill and reduce both our disposal costs and our carbon footprint. Reusing furniture and office supplies saves money spent on purchasing new equipment and helps to free-up the space occupied by unused equipment. Each transaction is monitored and every participant is registered, which means that waste disposal obligations and legal liability concerns are met. The portal also provides detailed up-to-date information on both the environmental benefits and financial savings generated.
WARPit is simple to use and you need to be a registered user to use it. To register, follow the steps below:
