About Us

Toss it? No way!

With more than 2,000 locations in over 30 countries, Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together).

At Repair Café Bassendean, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need. On clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, toys, and much more. You’ll also find experienced volunteers with repair skills in all kinds of fields.
Post-consumer waste has become a huge problem in modern society, and this partly stems from a culture of discarding broken or unused items, including clothing and electronics. We’re here to help those in our community who want to save their items from landfill and bring back a culture of repairing.
Our Impact

Since starting in July 2018, we have helped hundreds of people save their broken household goods from landfill!
