Community Toolbox Canberra - Repair Cafe

Community Toolbox Canberra is committed to increasing the intensity of use of the Earth’s resources. Repairing items, where possible, is another way to do this and to divert them from landfill.

Repair cafés are a place to bring your broken and not-working items to be fixed by volunteer repairers with the aim of keeping more things out of landfill, reducing consumption and lowering the pressure on the Earth’s resources. It also saves you money. Repairers offer their skills for free so you only need to pay for any significant parts that might be required.

The Community Toolbox Canberra Repair Café operates on the last Saturday of each month between 2pm and 5pm (except January and December).
