Welcome to WARPit (Waste Action Reuse Portal)! By registering to use the University’s WARPit account a department or college can post or claim otherwise unwanted items from across the University.
The most popular items are office furniture and office supplies but there is so much more. Using WARPit can really help departments to reduce their purchasing and disposal costs. As well as helping the University reduce its environmental impact.
Every year we avoid sending on average 100,000 kgs to waste and make savings of £100,000 by using WARPit.
So if you are relocating, refurbishing or spring cleaning, look no further. Those unwanted items will soon find a new home to be put to good use and you can find what you need without spending a penny.
The WARPit scheme is open to all departments and colleges and is administered by the Environmental Sustainability team.
You may only use WARPit for collegiate University property and items must stay the property of the collegiate University - so the system is not for staff or students' personal use or personal items. For full terms and conditions please visit WARPit. We are also unable to organise the collection or delivery of items. To arrange this, please contact your Building Manager or FM Manager.
There are many small but impactful actions you can take in your department to create a culture of sustainability. Signing up to WARPit is definitely one of the easiest!
The WARPit portal is easy to use and helps the University reduce waste. It helps cut both our procurement and waste disposal costs. You can take a virtual tour of the WARPit portal here.

You will need to be logged in to complete any of the following actions below.
The system will send you a reminder to pick up an item until you change the status of the item to collect. Please do this via the WARPit regular roundup message or via the menu on the lefthand side.
A regular roundup of activity is sent to members. By default, this is sent every day. If you prefer you can switch to a weekly notification, or turn them off altogether. You can change settings from the ‘Notification’ menu found on the left.

You may only use WARPit for collegiate University property. It is not for personal use.
If you do have personal items you would like to rehome or claim here's a couple of ideas:
UniGreenScheme is one of the University's preferred suppliers.They collect, store and sell surplus equipment and return a share of the profits to the department. The income returned is 50% of the proceeds of any sale, less any direct costs. For example, if an item is resold for £100, with £20 direct costs, the University/Department would be repaid 50% of the £80 proceed (in other words £40).
For more details contact Luke Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
