Help the environment and your community by repairing it instead of tossing it! At Northbrook Repairs, skilled volunteers will do their best to help you repair an item, free of charge. At some of our past events, lamps, toys, clothing, books, bags, and bicycles have been repaired.

Please note: 

  • Your item must be small enough for you to carry. (No lawnmowers or other large machines, or anything leaking, dangerous, containing gasoline, or having a strong odor will be accepted.)

  • Register in person in the Pollak Room when you arrive, and be prepared to wait with your item for your turn to meet with a volunteer.

  • No drop-offs. You must be present when we call your name and during the repair.

  • Limit 1 item per person at a time. 

  • After your item is repaired you may return to the end of the line with an additional item for repair.

  • No items will be accepted after 3:00pm.

  • We’ll do our best, but we cannot guarantee your item will be fixed.
