About OSU Repair Fairs

Repair Fairs are twice-per-term events sponsored by the student group Waste Watchers, a joint group of Campus Recycling and the Student Sustainability Initiative. In the 2014-15 academic year we anticipate hosting them in the months of October, November, January, February, April and May.
