About the 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. At this point in time we are planning to continue the Repair Fairs in the 2014-15 academic year and anticipate again hosting them in the months of October, November, January, February, April and May. Details vary each time, so stay tuned to the webpage for information about our upcoming fairs.

No Repair Fairs will be held during the summer of 2014.
