Provided by Prince William County Solid Waste Division
Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB) and Prince William County Solid Waste Division will hold another Fix-It Fair on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Central Library, 8601 Mathis Ave., Manassas.
Repair appointment/registration is required and available at KPWB.org, Events tab. Registration schedules are available for small furniture and appliances, bicycles, costume jewelry, clothing and other portable items. Masks, and social distancing will be encouraged to maximize the safety of fixers, volunteers and customers.
Fix-It events provide members of the community the opportunity to bring salvageable items for repair and subsequent reuse. This type of service event has been very popular in other communities, and last year almost 40 Prince William residents were excited to get their special treasures repaired and bikes, electronics and lawn equipment running again. Along with recycling, repair and reuse practices help conserve landfill space.
“The Solid Waste Division is happy to coordinate with KPWB and provide this service again to the Prince William community. Since Prince William Recycles Day event was not feasible again this year, the Fix-It Fair is a great way to continue to encourage reuse and waste reduction, in a limited contact manner” said event coordinator Deborah Campbell.” “Last year, there were lots of smiles and words of appreciation from residents that were able to get their items repaired,” she added.
