Do you have a household item that needs fixing? Join us October 8th!

 

 

Sheridan is hosting its next Repair Café where you can get free help fixing your broken items, and more importantly, learn from expert volunteer “fixers” about how to repair them yourself!

At the Repair Café, you can get help to fix small appliances, electronics, computers, clothes and bikes.

  • Who: Anyone from Sheridan and the wider community
  • What: Repair Café – a global movement that aims to reduce the waste sent to landfill and to change society’s ‘throwaway’ mindset
  • Where: Hazel McCallion Campus, B Wing, Creativity Commons (first floor)
  • When: Tuesday, October 8, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
  • Why: To celebrate and reaffirm Sheridan’s commitment to its Mission Zero plan
  • Cost: FREE!

Reminders to Repair Café visitors:

  • If you are planning to join, please arrive early to avoid lineups. Registration may close at 1:30 p.m.
  • The fixer will work with you to repair your item. You will need to be present throughout the repair process.
  • Bring all the accessories of your item if they are available (e.g. cable, manual), which would help diagnosing the problem.
  • Bring a part to test if you can (e.g. a working bulb for your lamp, a CD for your CD player, a monitor for your CPU unit)
  • Anyone is welcome to visit the Repair Café with or without a broken item. Our fixers can answer your question and       provide advice on how to repair & maintain your item.

If you have any questions, please email the Office for Sustainability at missionzero@sheridancollege.ca.
