STORY IDEA OF THE WEEK

Saturday, June 8, 2019
9 a.m. – Don’t Pitch It, Fix It!
Rosemont Community Center, 4872 Rose Bay Drive

The City of Orlando is proud to partner with the City of Winter Park and Orange County Government in hosting Don’t Pitch It, Fix It! events across the county this Saturday.

The event provides free and low-cost minor repair services for common household items and creates a unique opportunity for residents to rescue items that might otherwise have gone to a landfill.

Volunteers will be at the Rosemont Community Center working to repair electronics, jewelry, watches, bicycles, lawn equipment and other common household items. City of Orlando Sustainability Project Manager Joe England will be on site to discuss how this unique event supports the city’s goal of becoming a zero-waste community by 2040.
