Bring your small household items including clothing and we’ll try to repair them or help you fix them! We want to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money.
This event is FREE to the public!
This will be the first public repair event in White Center. Two previous repair events in White Center on April 26, 2016, and June 11, 2016, served the King County Housing Authority community Seola Gardens.
You must be present during the repair. We will have people experienced in fixing various things. Sorry, no guarantee 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 tell you exactly what part you need so you can order it online and finish the repair yourself at home.
Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Please do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor.
WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
WHERE: White Center Community Center in Steve Cox Memorial Park, 1321 SW 102nd Street, 98146
RSVP: To sign up to attend, or if you have questions, please contact Tom Watson at 206-477-4481.

If there is strong interest, we will schedule more of these in the future or on a regular basis, possibly at other locations in White Center. Thanks!
The King County EcoConsumer public outreach program has launched repair groups and events in King County, where people can bring small household items and clothing. Our experienced all-purpose fixers and sewing fixers will work on them, and can help you learn repair too.
Each repair event or group will operate differently, based on the needs of the local community. They might meet only once or twice, or continue meeting every two or three months.
At all of these events, people can bring in household items including small furniture, small appliances, personal electronics and clothing. Our overall success rate at these events for repairing items or helpfully diagnosing the problem (you may need to get a new part, for example) has generally been 70 percent or higher, although some electronics may be difficult to fix.
