Welcome to the waste directory

What can be recycled?

WARP-IT is an oline exchange system which gets the best value out of waste resources. It finds new owners for items so that we can avoid unnecessary diposals.

If you have furniture you wish to dispose of which is still in good conditionthen WARP-it is the best solution.

Prolonging the life of items reduces need for new materials and new manufacturing and therefore makes a significant contribution to reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.

WARP-it has many benefits:

  • Reduce waste disposal costs
  • Reduce purchasing costs
  • Increase recycling
  • Reduce carbon emissions
  • Easy participation
