Repair e -waste

Dear Madam or Sir,

Council is no longer taking any e-waste in our bins. There is an alternative to taking your small e-waste (only laptop-size and smaller) to one of the Customer Service Centres or transfer stations.

Why not bring it to our Repair Cafe next week (Sunday 21 st July) at Victoria Park Pavilion from 1.00 - 4.00 pm? Daylesford's Repair Café is always the third Sunday of the month, so put that date in your diary. For a gold coin donation, see if the clever volunteers can fix it.

If not, someone may be able to use it for parts. If you have already replaced an item, still bring it along and the fixers may be able to mend it for someone who can't afford to buy one.

The fixers also sharpen knives, scissors and tools, fix bikes, electrical appliances and motors, and mend garments - it's amazing to watch them.

There is also a cafe where, for another gold coin, you can enjoy coffee, or all sorts of teas, plus yummy cake and biscuits.

It's a happy place, so come and enjoy the vibe, and lets each do our bit to keep as much as we can out of landfill.

Hope to see you there,

Dallas Kinnear, Daylesford
