Lismore Tidy Towns launched the Waterford Repair Directory in Lismore on Thursday, 6th October. This directory lists various businesses around the county that can repair a range of broken items. 

As more and more people are seeing the value of getting items repaired than ever before, it is important to be able to find someone who can repair your items. Repair services such as shoe repairs, clothes alterations, lawnmower repairs and jewellery repairs are included in the directory, amongst a number of other repair services.

The Department of the Environment and Waterford City and County Council funded Vivienne Foot through the Local Agenda 21 Environment Partnership Fund to compile the directory. The aim is to encourage repair and reuse as a method of reducing waste.
