MEATH COUNTY COUNCIL IS COMPILING A REPAIR AND REUSE DIRECTORY FOR MEATH
This directory will provide information for consumers on how to get the best return from their products, from clothes, to TVs, washing machines, shoes, furniture, DVDs, bicycles, lawnmowers, watches, mobile phones etc.
We are asking all local repair outlets in the County to contact us to be included in this listing. It is free of charge to all participants and will be distributed widely by Meath County Council on publication.
“At present many household items are deposited for recycling and disposal which would have plenty of life left in them if they were reused or repaired. This is the market we are hoping to tap into with this directory”, according to Meath County Council Environmental Awareness Officer Bernadine Carry.
In addition to extending the lifetime of goods through reusing and repairing, these businesses are of great benefit to the local economy as jobs in the repair industry tend to be local. The following is a list of the repair services that will be included in the directory, the list is not exhaustive so if you have anything to add to it, please get in touch and let us know.
