Repair items, save money, and learn something new!

As a part of the City’s Love Where You Live initiative to create a cleaner, greener and healthier community, Engineering Operations: Solid Waste team and Surrey Libraries have partnered to host our inaugural Repair Event at the City Centre Library. Give your broken household items a new lease on life after a simple repair.

This is a free, family-friendly event. We will supply the space, tools and experts. Simply bring us your items and a desire to learn. Our repair experts include: Repair Matters, the PEDAL Society, FreeGeek Vancouver and Frameworq Textiles.

Why Repair?

Thousands of ripped or worn-out textiles, broken computers, small electronics and appliances are thrown away every year. Counter this throwaway culture, save your money, and learn something new. Join the worldwide movement to foster a culture of repair, community and learning.
