Don’t toss it; fix it!
The Oshawa Public Libraries is set to conduct its popular free in-person Repair Café session, where people can come with their small broken appliances, electronics, jewelry, clothing and more.
Each year, almost 25.7 million tonnes of waste is put into landfills across Canada, according to the government statistics.
Skilled volunteers at the repair session are going to help and educate people on mending their broken items on their own.
The Repair Cafés started in 2009 in Netherlands to empower people. The first-ever event established a necessity for people to learn how to do their own repairs and demonstrated the value of sharing experience and knowledge with others.
Those who have a flair for repair can volunteer at the event as a member of the Repair Café’s team. Interested enthusiasts can reach out to Andrea at 905-579-6111, ext. 5228.
