    Description:

    Do you have 20 minutes to spare to make a difference in your community? At 10 a.m. on Wednesday April 1st the Regional Waste Reduction Office challenges you to give just twenty minutes of your time to the 20 Minute Make-Over – a community-wide  spring clean-up blitz.

    “The 20 Minute Make Over kick starts Community Clean Up Month for all of April,” says Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart. “The challenge: take just 20 minutes of your day on Wednesday April 1st at 10am, and do a little spring cleaning in your neighborhood or place of work. It’s a great way to spend a coffee break doing something positive for the community. You decide how you want to pitch in, by picking up   trash, sweeping a sidewalk, busting graffiti, there’s lots to choose from!”

    The Regional Waste Reduction Office provides free garbage bags and gloves for anyone collecting litter. They’ll even arrange to have the garbage-filled bags picked up and taken to the landfill after your clean-up is done. Graffiti busting kits are also available for pick up.

    To register your group for garbage bags and gloves, and for pick up of your litter- filled bags when your clean-up is complete, contact the Regional Waste Reduction Office before March 31st at 250.469.6250. For more clean up information or to tackle a clean- up job during the month of April visit regionaldistrict.com/recycle.

    Description:

    Do you have a household item in need of repair, don’t want to toss it out, but you’re not sure how to go about fixing it?  Toaster that just won’t toast?  A lamp on the fritz?  The old bicycle sitting neglected with a flat?   Clothes screaming for mending or TLC? Then the Repair Café could be just the event you’re looking for! Hosted by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, the Repair Café takes place at Okanagan College Center for Learning, Saturday April 18th from 10am until 2pm. And it’s all free!  Visit Repair Cafe webpage

    “Most often  when you get an item repaired, it’s a drop off, pick up process, and you’re not part of the repair work or the solution, you don’t get to see how it’s done,” says Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart with the Regional District. “At the Repair Café, people are the process, and the free repair of items engages everyone participating.”

    Stewart adds, “The sad truth is many household items have become cheaper to replace than repair, and the list of companies that refurbish items or fix broken appliances is short. Repair Cafes enlist handy volunteers to help fix broken household items at no cost and teach basic repair skills. They help shift us from a throw away to a fix-it society.”

    If you have something you‘re looking to have repaired, refurbished, revamped or renewed, you’re invited to join in on the Repair Café. For more info visit regionaldistrict.com/recycle or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250.
