Learn Why Repair is an Important Part of an Extended Waste Hierarchy

Step 1. What do you do when something you own, say an appliance or your smartphone, breaks? Often there are two options: fix it, or replace it. Replacing an item is sometimes easier than repairing it, and the most cost-effective solution. But in a circular economy, we want goods and materials to stay in circulation at high value for as long as possible.
