City of Orlando Hosts Free “Don’t Pitch It, Fix It” Event, Repairing Household Items

September 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

free

The City of Orlando is hosting “Don’t Pitch It, Fix It,” a free community event providing free or low-cost minor repair services to common household items. At the event, local businesses and volunteers will offer residents repairs on items including electronics, bicycles, small appliances, jewelry, and clothing.

By repairing old or damaged items, Orlando residents can save money, while also adding to the city’s sustainability efforts. Giving life back into these household items reduces waste in the landfill and helps to create a smaller carbon footprint.

This event is a part of Orlando’s continued efforts to be one of the most sustainable cities in America, and the City of Orlando is joining with Winter Park and Orange County in order to increase the repair service opportunities for local residents.
