Have a broken lamp or small appliance? Don’t throw it out – get it fixed for free.

Bring your small household items and clothing to a Repair Café and King County’s expert “fixers” will repair and mend them for free. The last Repair Café in Kirkland this fall is on Oct. 21 at Lake Washington Institute of Technology.

Here’s what to bring:

• Household items (lamps, small appliances)

• Small furniture (carried easily by one person)

• Electronics, computers

• Clothing (washed), zippers

• And more (just nothing leaking, dangerous, containing gasoline or with a strong odor)

Sign up in advance to make sure your item can be repaired; however, walk-ins are OK. To sign up, call Tom Watson at 206-477-4481 or email Tom.Watson@KingCounty.gov. Get more information on the EcoConsumerwebsite.
