West Central London Fixers bring together volunteer repairers and the community to fix their electronics for free. The idea is to nurture repair culture in the community, rather than throwing away electronics – indeed e-waste has become a huge environmental problem. Electronic waste is the fastest growing waste. Less than 18% of e-waste is recycled. The events are open to volunteer learner repairers so are educational as well. We also run two trainee sessions alongside our repair events. WCL Fixers currently organise monthly free repair events in two West London boroughs. We are launching in Westminster in March 2023.
