Spring into Repair Open House on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 12pm to 4pm at the Illini Gadget Garage.

Have you finally decided to get rid of those CDs you haven't touched in a few years or that box of old, dead batteries you found during spring cleaning? The Gadget Garage can help! Join them for the Spring into Repair Open House on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 12pm to 4pm to learn about repairing your own devices (no experience necessary) and what can be done to recycle or reuse devices you no longer want or need. During this event, the Gadget Garage will also be hosting recycled crafting and providing light snacks and beverages.

The Gadget Garage also collects household dry-cell batteries for recycling as well as CDs and CD cases, so feel free to bring those in with you. Every bit of recycling helps.
