Fixit Clinic for Small Items

Saturday | July 26, 2014 | 11:00 am — 2:00 pm

Shoreway Environmental Center | 225 Shoreway Road, San Carlos, CA 94070

Don’t throw it away! Learn how to fix your broken stuff, or at least learn more about it disassembling it.

The County of San Mateo RecycleWorks program in collaboration with Rethinkwaste and the TechShop, will be holding its first Free Fixit Clinic in San Mateo County.

The general public is invited to bring their broken, non-functioning items such as small electronic items, small household appliances, computers, electronic toys and other items for assessment, disassembly and possibly repair. As participants you will learn how to fix-it yourself! Fixit coaches will be on hand to help disassemble and troubleshoot items. Specialty tools will also be provided. For more information or to register, visit website or call. This is a family-friendly event, but space is limited.
