A BORDER group focused on sustainability followed its own credo when setting up a different service.

Repair Cafe Albury-Wodonga will be able to fix scratched CDs and DVDs for the first time at its next session on August 5.

Co-ordinator Lizette Salmon said an initial inquiry to the cafe’s Facebook page led to a search for the right equipment.

“Finally through, again, our Facebook page, somebody who was no longer using theirs offered his,” she said.

“It’s quite ideal that we’ve been offered this one that was sitting in somebody’s shed not doing anything, it’s really a win-win outcome.”

Ms Salmon said the disc repairs would be an ongoing feature, with several people to be trained to use the machine.

“We were thinking, well, if this one person sees a need for it and there are others, particularly if they’ve got favourite or sentimental CDs or DVDs, this might be useful for them,” she said.

  • Repair Cafe will be held 10am to 1pm, August 5, at the Sustainable Activity Centre, Lincoln Causeway
