Ridge Meadows Recycling Society celebrating three years of Repair Cafés

First one coming to the Maple Ridge Public Library on Feb. 15

Repair Cafés are coming to Maple Ridge for the third straight year.

A Repair Café is where experienced volunteers help you repair small appliances, jewelry, clothing, small furniture, electronics, bicycles and toys.

The Ridge Meadows Recycling Society launched the inaugural event on Mar. 24, 2018 at the Maple Ridge Seniors Activity Centre with 30 volunteers.
