The three Rs are a well-known concept in waste management, but all too often we tend to concentrate on the third of these – recycle.
To help address the reuse issue the University has teamed up with WARPit to launch an online exchange system. University of Nottingham staff can use WARPit to redistribute their school’s or department’s unwanted furniture, fixtures, fittings and office equipment.
So why have we signed up to use WARPit?
The scheme has been running for a couple of months and we have over 100 members already. In the first two months we have seen £39,000 savings, avoided eight tonnes of waste going to landfill and saved 17 tonnes of carbon by reusing furniture and equipment.
Find out how you can join the WARPit network and start making savings.
