Long Beach Fix It Clinics

Release Date: 2024-05-03

LB Recycles has partnered with LB ReusesAlgalita, the Long Beach Time Exchange, Pedal Movement, and Fixit Clinic, and with support of LA County Public Works to bring Fixit Clinics to Long Beach. 

Fixit Clinics are events where volunteer fixit coaches and community members work alongside one another to attempt repairing an item. Attempting to repair an item before recycling or disposing of it is a great waste reduction practice. In alignment with LB Reuses’ mission to reduce single-use plastic and overall waste through engagement, advocacy, and collaboration on reuse initiatives, we aim to work with organizations and the community to facilitate knowledge and tool sharing so that items may be repaired and given a new life. Community members can bring broken items such as electronics, bicycles, watches, jewelry, toys, clothes, and small appliances.
