Nancy Lo from Hennepin County Environmental Services (Minnesota Fixit Clinics) reports these stats from the 18 Fixit Clinics they’ve held so far:
(i.e. 7,803 lbs. of items returned to service and NOT sent on to recycling or a landfill — that’s almost four TONS of stuff fixed!)
Also note that their 69.6% successful fix rate is tantalizingly close to 70%
Makes me think we should all try to collect and keep better stats at all our Fixit Clinics.
