We’re excited to be partnering with SPEC and the City of Vancouver to offer the community an opportunity to have a variety of household items repaired and also recycle small appliances and power tools for free!
What can I have repaired?
- Electrical items like small appliances & power tools (eg. toasters, vacuums, portable heaters)
- Computers & other computer accessories
- Other small household items – if you can carry an item in expert volunteer fixers will try their hand at repairing it with you!
**If you’re aware your fix will need a specific part please bring it.
How do I have something repaired?
Pre-registration is required at: www.eventbrite.ca/e/repair-cafe-hastings-community-centre-tickets-461099901217
In 2023 a number of Repair Cafes are being scheduled in the City of Vancouver so if you can’t make this one – check the municipality’s website for more upcoming events!
