Lismore Tidy Towns launched the ‘Waterford Repair Directory’ in Lismore on Thursday last, the 6th of October.
This directory lists various businesses around Co. Waterford that can repair a range of broken items. The aim is to encourage repair and reuse as a method of reducing waste. View the full directory on www.waterfordcouncil.ie or see below to download.
The Department of the Environment and Waterford City & County Council funded Vivienne Foot, through the Local Agenda 21 Environment Partnership Fund, to compile the Repair Directory for Co. Waterford.
Speaking at the launch of the Repair Directory in Lismore last Thursday, Ella Ryan, Environment Awareness Officer with Waterford City & County Council said “The aim of the Repair Directory is to make it easier for people to consider repair as an option to extend the life cycle of an item rather than just throwing it away. As well as being important to waste management, repair and reuse are also important elements of the local economy. We are delighted to launch this directory as part of National Reuse Month.
