Community Repair Coop

A community driven repair coop is being established at The People Place in Busselton, for people to learn how to repair household items, rather than throwing them away. The idea behind the coop is for people who know how to repair things to volunteer to teach people how to fix a household item which needs repairing.

The Repair Coop Busselton founder Nick Edwards said, similar organisations had existed around the world for the last 10 years. “One was recently opened in Perth, it is a great way to build up skills in the community,” he said. “There is a lot of talk at the moment about people throwing away goods and things they have worked for and bought, only not to be able to fix them when they break and then buy another one. This is an opportunity to let people learn how to repair some of those things around their house without having to throw them away and buy a new one.”

The types of items which could be taken to the coop for repair would be household items that could be carried including small furniture, small electrical items, batteries, clothes, paintings, bikes or computers. “We are calling on people who can repair things and would like to volunteer at the coop,” he said. “We are very keen to hear from people who have a skill in repairing anything. If we know beforehand what skills will be available we can let people know what to bring in for repair.”

The People Place, Chief Executive Officer, Rilla Beresford said “We thought it was a great way to keep things out of landfill by up-cycling. It is important that people register so we know what skills will be available at the Co-op,” she said.
