Free White Center Repair Time will be March 24 at Community Center Gym


A FREE ‘Repair Time’ event will be held on Saturday, March 24, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the White Center Community Center gym Steve Cox Memorial Park.

Bring in your small household items and clothing, and experienced “fixers” will try to repair and mend them.

This event will be held at the White Center Community Center gym in Steve Cox Memorial Park.

You can sign up or ask questions by contacting Tom Watson at [email protected] or call 206-477-4481.

You must be present during the repair. There is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more.

It’s “first-come, first-served,” and the Fixers try, if possible, to work on at least one item from everyone who comes in. If you bring more than one item, they will try to work on your other items as time allows.

For specialized repairs (which many are), they may not be able to work on your item unless you bring the specific parts or materials needed for your repair.

Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles that you bring in for mending should be washed first.

Although they do take walk-ins, please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared.

This repair event is brought to you by the King County Solid Waste Division’s EcoConsumer program, and King County Parks Division. Thanks – see you there!
