Corporate Service

In addition to our fantastic website, Recipro also offers services to organisations with surplus. Contractors, suppliers, housing associations, councils…anybody who has surplus resources. 

There are a number of ways in which we can work with your organisation to reduce waste and save money.

Internal Reuse System
This is a brand new service which allows companies to share surplus building materials, office furniture and other resources between sites, departments and buildings.  Contact us or see below for more information.

Managed Service
In certain areas, we run ReciproCity Reuse Centres, these centres accept donations of surplus product which are supplied into local community groups, charities families and schools. Click here to find your nearest Reuse Centre.

For more information on any of these services, please contact Recipro on 0844 225 3000 or by using the contact us form here.

Internal Reuse System

Does your company ever have surplus resources that could be used elsewhere? Why not share?!?

This brand new service allows organisations to share surplus building materials and resources between sites, locations, buildings or departments. 

Once registered with the system, you will have access to a closed website, accessible only by your employees. They can quickly and easily upload details of any resources they have available, and these are then viewable by all other employees registered on the service. They can search for and enquire about items on the website, using mobile, computer or tablet.

It’s a quick, simple way to reduce waste, save money and share resources!

Resource Sharing Service

For contractors, waste is a big deal. Our Resource Sharing Service provides an alternative to the skip for any leftover, unwanted building materials. In certain areas of the UK, our ReciproCity and partner Reuse Centres are able to collect or accept delivery of unwanted materials, which are supplied into the local community. 

This reduces waste and lowers the carbon footprint of sites. It can save money as fewer new resources are required, and help community groups if unwanted resources are passed on to a reuse centre.

The current areas we operate in are:

-Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, North Wales
-Greater London
-South Wales & Bristol

For more information on how we can work with your company, please do not hesitate to contact us.

FAQ

 

Technical

Why won't my photo upload?
Images must be in either 'gif', 'jpeg' or 'png' format and must be no larger than 2MB. If you still can't upload, contact the system administrator.

General

Why don’t any items appear in my search?
It is possible that there are currently no items for sale for your specific search. We suggest returning to the site in a short period of time, or widening your search area.

Do you arrange delivery? 
No, we act simply to put two parties in touch with each other. Delivery or collection arrangements must be made direct with the seller.

What if my goods are faulty?
As per our terms and conditions, the condition of the goods is the responsibility of the two parties involved. We would recommend checking products before taking possession, and from a seller point of view we would recommend having buyers sign a liability document before passing on products. Download the Liability Template in the Resources section and adjust if necessary.

Will it cost me to use recipro?
No! Recipro is completely free to use, whether you are adding items to the site, searching for materials or reading our resources. Some items added to the site may have a cost, but 100% of this price goes to the seller.

Registration

What details do I need to give to register?
