Covid 19 - Safety while picking up items

Hello Everyone,


We want to do everything we can to make sure you receive the items you need - and also protect the health and safety of all parties involved in a reuse transaction. A reuse transaction is when an item/s has reached the end of its first useful life in an organisation and is then put up on Warp It to be reused internally or then offered for free to charities and schools. 

Where you are already using PPE in your work activity to protect against COVID-19 risks, you should continue to do so when picking up and dropping off items for reuse.

When receiving furniture and equipment via the reuse programme please follow the below guidelines to keep your exposure risk minimal:

. Maintain social distancing
. Wash your hands after handling the furniture when you first bring it into the office (or your home if related to work from home (WFH) and before touching other items in the office or home.
. For furniture with hard surfaces, wash with warm soapy water containing standard detergent to remove virus particles
. For electrical goods or furniture that can’t get wet, disinfectant wipes with more than 70% ethanol.
. For furniture with fabric surfaces, these could be washed with soapy water
Alternatively, or as an additional precaution, the item could be left untouched in a spare room or outside for at least three days.
. Disinfectant spray can be directly sprayed and wiped down, working to more rigorously wipe down areas that you think would have been more prone to be touched by human hands.
. Dispose of any packaging or wipes as per your internal guideline.
If you require lots of different assets try to get them all delivered in bulk.


If you have any questions about these rules and regulations get in contact and we will be happy to answer any and all questions, thank you!
