UCL Estates have an online equipment/furniture/resource reuse and management system called WARPit
What is WARPit?
WARPit is an easy to use online portal which provides a platform for UCL to redistribute (give, loan or share) resources legally and conveniently within UCL and beyond, within other organisations. The tool makes it easy for staff to find others in their organisation with “stuff” spare, reducing procurement spend. It also makes it easy for staff who are disposing of “stuff” to find new owners, saving on waste disposal.
The tool demonstrates significant savings on purchasing and waste disposal costs, as well as avoiding landfill and carbon emissions.
Transferring resources between people in organisation and between organisations is fraught with difficulties. WARP-IT has been developed after 10 years of setting up reuse systems within the facilities management, public and third sector. The tool seeks to solve these problems, making transfers convenient, easy and legal and stops “stuff” ending up in skips and being bought needlessly.
WARPit works with furniture equipment or any resource, including fixtures and fittings, electrical, books, stationery, lab equipment, technical equipment etc etc.
