Have broken stuff? Should you just throw it away? No way! Bring it to the upcoming Repair Cafes! On September 21st, October 19th, and November 16th from 10 am to 2 pm, “repair specialists” will be at the Everett Public Works Spada Conference Room, 3200 Cedar Street at for two “Repair Cafes” hosted by WSU Snohomish County Extension’s Sustainable Community Stewards and funded by the Snohomish County Public Works Solid Waste division. These events are 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. “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!”
