They say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, but there’s another side to that coin: if it is broke, do!
There are 2 things about electronic equipment when it stops working. First, it’s quite hard to recycle, and it can take a lot of resources to process before what’s left ends up in landfill.
The second point, though, might surprise you: currently, only 7% of the electronic equipment which is collected at household waste recycling centres is reused. But with a small amount of repair and refurbishment, this could increase to 23%!
In other words, getting a minor repair often means you get an item that works again, so you don’t need to buy a replacement – you prevent waste and save yourself cash, so what’s not to like?

Just to be clear, they can’t help you with electrical goods like irons, food processors, radios, hair straighteners etc, and they don’t teach people how to use software – it’s still a great free service though!
You won’t have to pay anything for the session, but if repairs are needed there may be a charge for replacement parts.
