Sarah Buckland, Environment & Sustainability Manager, University of Central Lancashire emailed the EAUC Educational Members' Network to ask about furtniture reuse:

“We have had a fairly informal furniture swapping service for unwanted and wanted furniture for a number of years however, it is quite time and space intensive for the central staff member managing the process. 

Recently Daniel from WARP-it came in to explain how their centralised, online swap system works and I understand from him that a number of you are already using the service.

On the face of it the WARP-it system does seem to have thought of everything, but some of my colleagues are a bit hesitant believing that staff wouldn‟t take the time to upload photos and that there may be some difficulty once 3rd parties from the wider community get involved, with collections needing to be supervised to ensure the right items are removed, in public access buildings.
So I would be interested to know how you are finding WARP-it, has it impacted on cost savings, recycling rates and storage space requirements? Have there been any logistical or management admin issues?”
