The County of San Mateo RecycleWorks program in collaboration with Rethinkwaste and the TechShop, will be holding its first Free Fixit Clinic in San Mateo County on July 26, 2014 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Shoreway Environmental Center, 225 Shoreway Road, San Carlos.

The general public is invited to bring their broken, non-functioning items such as electronics, small household appliances, computers, electronic toys and other items for assessment, disassembly and possibly repair. As a participant, you will learn how to fix-it yourself!

Fixit coaches will be on hand to help disassemble and troubleshoot items. Specialty tools will also be provided. For more information or to register, visit or call (650) 802-3506. More about Fixit Clinic:
