Marion County Environmental Services partners with local organizations for Repair Fair & Share events.
The Repair Fair & Share is a collective of volunteers who join together to fix broken items, teach valuable repair skills, and learn from listening and doing. The community benefits by making connections, learning skills, reducing waste, andsaving money. We meet twice a year in Salem, Oregon and welcome fixers, tinkerers, and supporters. For more information visit: repairfair.net. or contact Jessica Ramey (503.365.3180)
Valley Roots is a once a month gathering to celebrate and nurture a sustainable community in the Mid-Willamette Valley. The events are free of charge and open to those who RSVP. For more information visit the Valley Roots facebook page.
Community Swap Events
Saturday, September 3rd, Marion County partnered with the Salem Public Library to offer a free Blue Jeans Swap. In 2015, we also had a Homecoming Swap. Marion County is interested in hosting more swaps in the future to serve the community and reduce waste.
