[ARCHIVED] Repair Fair & Recycling Expo Set for Nov. 19

Repair Fair web

The Annual Repair Fair & Recycling Expo registration is now open! The Clean County Commission is hosting the event on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Warhill High School, 4615 Opportunity Way. 

In celebration of America Recycles Day, the event will provide drive-thru recycling drop-off for plastic bags, glass, compost and tires, as well as donation acceptance of furniture, household goods, building materials, clothing, and shoes. Simultaneously there will be fixers indoors repairing lightly broken items. As a bonus – free shredding will be provided (maximum 2 bankers box/grocery store bags per person). The event will help mend items such as jewelry, bikes, woodworking, small appliances, and items needing welding or sewing.

Are you interested in attending? This event is open to all James City County residents. No registration is required for outdoor recycling and donation drop-off. To ensure that the proper tools and supplies are present to fix items, please complete the Repairable Item Interest Form and provide a detailed description of the repair needed, including photos. Please note, all forms will be evaluated to determine which items can be repaired during the fair. A confirmation email will be sent for selected items with further information.

The Clean County Commission is also looking for volunteers to help run the event and "Fixers" to help citizens repair their salvageable items. To volunteer at the event, please sign up here.  If you have a special skill particularly sewing, jewelry repair, or computers, and are interested in helping your neighbors, please fill out the Fixer Interest Form. Selected Fixers will receive a monetary stipend of $75 for their time, as well as lunch. Tools and supplies will be available to use onsite.

NOTICE: This event is free. Repairs must be registered in advance. The event hosts do not warrant any of the repairs, are not liable for any damage to or loss of property, and participation is at the risk of the participants.
