South King Repair Café

South King Repair Café

Next one!
Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, 3 to 6:30 p.m.
Federal Way City Hall
33325 8th Ave S, Federal Way, 98003 (external).

Brought to you by the King County EcoConsumer program, City of Federal Way (external) and the South King Tool Library (external) project.

Do you have a broken lamp, pair of ripped jeans, or busted chair sitting around? Don’t trash them - bring them to the free Repair Café! Skilled “fixers” will be there to help you repair your damaged or broken household items.

Residents are encouraged to sign up in advance and describe what small household items you plan to bring for repair. Walk-ins are welcome and everyone will be assisted as time is available.

We can only work on items small enough for one person to easily carry in. Please do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, use gasoline, or have a strong odor. We can’t make appointments for specific times, and you must be present during the repair. No guarantees an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more. For items needing product-specific parts, we’ll try to determine what's needed so you can purchase it at a store or online and finish the repair yourself at home.

The goals of this event are to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money!

If you plan to bring a household item or article of clothing for us to work on, please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you’re bringing, so our fixers can be prepared. To sign up to attend, or if you have questions, please contact Tom Watson at 206-477-4481. Thanks!
