Saskatchewan Joins the Nation in Celebrating Waste Reduction Week in Canada October 21-27, 2019

Repair Cafe

Help us celebrate Waste Reduction Week!
In 2019, we are hosting Repair Cafes all across Saskatchewan. 

In an effort to provide a meaningful Waste Reduction Week experience — where waste is actually reduced — the SWRC is organizing Repair Cafes in each city in the province with help from our sponsor Affinity Credit Union. A Repair Cafe is a pop-up, one day event where the public can bring in household items to be fixed for free by volunteers. Each item fixed, is one less item destined for the landfill.
