Provided by Prince William Solid Waste Division
Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB) and Prince William County Solid Waste Division are exploring the possibility of hosting a Fix It Fair this spring. Fix-It events provide 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. KPWB would like to try it out in Prince William County.
Tom Smith is Prince William County’s Solid Waste Division Chief. He said, “The Solid Waste Division is happy to partner with KPWB on this new project. A Fix-It Fair provides a convenient way for people to make their “it’s in good shape, except” items useable again. … [T]his reduces wastes and promotes reuse.” Reduce and reuse practices help conserve landfill space and enhance the quality of our environment.
If you’re a “fixer” of things like jewelry, clothing, small furniture and appliances, umbrellas, glasses, ceramics and other portable items, your talents are needed. If you would like to help for several hours at this fix-it event, please send an email to PWCRecycles@pwcgov.org with your name, phone and fix-it specialties.
