Repair Guide

Repair 

The Repair & Reuse Guide is for items that can avoid landfill by either fixing them or using reuse stores. The information is provided as a service to residents and is updated intermittently or when changes are brought to our attention. The County does not guarantee the information and residents are encouraged to call the repair/reuse centers to verify the information. Inclusion in this guide is not an endorsement of any of these companies, nor has the County purposely excluded any parties that provide repair/reuse services.

General Repair Guides

iFixit.com is a hub for guides on how to repair a variety of items from electronics, clothing, books, and more. Be it a damaged book or a missing zipper, there are a multitude of guides to help you get them back to working condition. 

Repair Fairs 

SCARCE and Joliet Junior College Romeoville hold repair fairs throughout the year.  Check their websites for upcoming events.
