Fix It, Don't Pitch It!


Fix It, Don’t Pitch It! is a communtiy repair concept in partnership with the City of Winter Park and the City of Orlando. The concept promotes repairing broken items to reduce landfill waste. This year, due to COVID-19, the in-person workshop will transition to a set of on-line ‘Fix It’ videos providing basic repair instructions and troubleshooting guidance.


During Pollution Prevention Week, September 19 to 24, 2021, Orange County will release several ‘Fix It’ videos for common household items. Repair and troubleshooting instructions for these Items will be available:

  • Electronics
  • Clothing
  • Jewelry
  • Bikes
  • Other common household items

How to participate

‘Fix It’ Videos will be shared on Orange County’s Facebook page, as well as Orange TV’s YouTube and Vimeo accounts.
