EUGENE, Ore. — Instead of tossing old, tattered clothes or broken furniture in the garbage, you can take advantage of the latest Lane County Master Recyclers campaign.
The Repair2Reuse Program is encouraging Lane County residents to get old products fixed instead of throwing them away and buying new ones. Not only would it help reduce the amount of waste going into landfills, it would also reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturers. The local business is appreciated.
“Repair in our own community is so much more important than buying another widget that was made across the world,” said Sarah Grimm, Waste Reduction Specialist. “It gives people an economic development for our community. People who do repair can gain some revenue and income for their family.”
