ASTORIA — And the number is 1,598 for this year — January through October. That’s how many pounds of repairable items the volunteers at Astoria’s Repair Cafe have weighed and repaired, or given advice on, to keep items — from jeans to weed-whackers — from ending up in a landfill.
Astoria’s next Repair Café is 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 1010 Duane St.
Repair Cafe is a community of people who repair, sew, sharpen and give expert advice on pretty much anything that is broken, torn, dull or in need of repair. (No gas engines.)
Join us with your repairables on the fourth Wednesday of each month, except for next month when our December event will be one week earlier: Dec. 19.
