Is the item reusable?

Warp It, the University's internal reuse network, is an online platform similar to eBay that allows staff and PhD students to redistribute surplus goods internally. 

Process

  1. Prepare the items for reuse/recycling e.g. remove contents from folders, remove staples/paperclips, remove plastic pockets, etc.
  2. Check if any colleagues can use, or place in stationary store.
  3. If not reusable internally (via Warp It), contact Waste Office who have external connections who will reuse stationary.
  4. If not suitable for reuse, determine what it is made of: single material items (e.g. plastic wallets or thin cardboard wallet folders) can be placed in Dry Mixed Recycling bin (orange lid); and multi-material items (e.g. lever arch or ring binders) in the General Waste bin (grey lid).
