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
