Information on equipment disposal, recycling and exchange.

The Estates Department Recycling and Waste section is co-ordinating the WARPit facility to help allow redundant equipment to be advertised, and exchanged or soldwithin the University of Edinburgh.

The aims of this facility are:

  • To reduce the deterioration of capital equipment through disuse
  • To reduce the amount of waste created through redundant equipment being discarded
  • To enable departments to recover some of their outlay on equipment that is no longer needed
  • To reduce the necessity for money and resources to be expended on buying new items which are already available within the University
  • To comply with theĀ Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations
