Have broken stuff? Should you just throw it away? No way!
Bring it to the upcoming free Repair Cafe!
On Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, “repair specialists” will be at McCollum Pioneer Park WSU Extension Education Center, 600 128th Street SE, Everett, for a Repair Cafe hosted by WSU Snohomish County Extension’s Sustainable Community Stewards and funded by the Snohomish County Public Works Solid Waste Division.
This event is free and open to all Snohomish County residents.
When a household item breaks, the typical first reaction is to throw it away and go buy a new one. That is exactly where Repair Cafes come into play!
Repair Cafes offer a solution rather than sending broken things to the landfill. Visitors bring their small broken household items and clothing to be fixed by the repair specialists.
Common repairable items can include lamps, laptops, clocks, vacuums, jewelry, electronics, bicycles, small kitchen appliances, toys, clothing and much more!
All-purpose fixers will do their best to send everyone out with functional items.
Visitors should pre-register for the event with information about the item that they need repaired. This will allow our specialists to help plan for what tools are needed and communicate with visitors what special parts they may need to bring with them.
Sustainable Community Steward Project Coordinator Heather Teegarden shared, “We don’t provide parts, so pre-registering is a great way to make sure you’ve got what you need to get the job done!”
