Free Laptop Health Checks & potential fixing with Dr. Laptop Abbey Road Recycling Centre Saturday September 3rd


The last Dr Laptop session at Wembley Library in August had the best turnout yet with full attendance and 50% of the laptops repaired on the spot.

The September session is at the West London Waste Recycling Centre.  These are the details:

We are delighted to invite you to our monthly Fixing Factory event! Come and get your laptop health-checked FREE with our IT specialists.

About this event Saturday September 3rd from 10.30am

If you're having problems with your device and don't know what's wrong, our friendly IT experts are on hand to help answer all your questions. Don't despair - choose repair!

We've opened the UK's FIRST EVER Fixing Factory at Abbey Road Recycling Centre in Brent to tackle the major problem of discarded tech.

Last year, west Londoners threw out 116,000 tonnes of electrical items – that’s over 68 Wembley arches worth of stuff! We're fixing our relationship with tech by:

- Saving laptops & tablets from waste by refurbishing and repairing them

- Teaching FREE repair skills to local people in the process

- Empowering local communities by giving FREE fixed devices to those without access


Book a slot to come down and receive a free diagnostics check and repair advice on your laptop or tablet. Our expert volunteers will need the full hour so don’t be late! We fix over 50% of devices on the spot.


Location: Abbey Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, Brent, London NW10 7TJ
