Event Details

This event explores the financial, social and environmental benefits that are created by the reuse and repair of assets within organisations. 

This free event will show you how to set up or improve reuse and repair systems within your organisation.

You will hear about the tools, tips and techniques which others have used to achieve success. You will hear about various case studies demonstrating the significant savings that reuse and repair can generate. 

As well as hearing from organisations who have set up their own reuse and repair mechanisms, you will also hear how organisations are sharing assets between each other to cut costs, carbon and waste. 

Attend this event if you are looking to adopt circular economy practices within your organisation and become more sustainable and resilient.

This event will interest anyone who has set up a reuse system in their organisation as well as sustainability, facilities management, waste and procurement managers in the public, private and 3rd sector.

The event is also a great opportunity for those organisations who use, to get to know each other to increase intra and inter organisational asset redistribution.

Warp It Reuse Network

We want to make the reuse mainstream.

Customers were telling us they want to meet other Warp It customers to share experiences and improve their own reuse.

This is the first round of regional Warp It Workshops.

If you are interested in improving organisational reuse then please come. Whethe you are a Warp It customer, or you have your own system to reuse surplus assets in your organisaiton.

Everyone's invited!

The following events are specifically aimed at staff within procurement, FM, sustainability, waste, planning, capital development,  space and asset management roles within large organisations. 

Warp It's mission for the last 15 years has been to make the reuse of assets easy. Warp It has saved organisations over £12 million in avoided waste and procurement charges developing reuse schemes. 

"The ultimate vision is where reuse & repair is so convenient and desirable, that organisations do not throw anything away or buy anything new. I want Warp It  to be the network for organisations, where buying new is the last resort and nothing is wasted. Where reusable items are redistributed for their 2nd and 3rd useful lives and when the items fail, they are diverted into repair.” Daniel O'Connor Warp It Founder
