Mountain Equipment Recyclers now OPEN in Colorado Springs!

Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. is a retail consignment store of high-quality outdoor equipment located in Colorado Springs, CO. Gear includes camping, backpacking, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, cycling, running, climbing, fly fishing, canoes/kayaks, and any other outdoor activity associated with this beautiful state.

Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. has multiple goals.

  • Offer high-quality gear at extremely reasonable prices.
  • Assist local military veterans and their families.
  • Preserve the environment.
  • Contribute to ‘buy local’ ideas.

The Great Recession has affected many. The cost of new high-quality outdoor gear is sometimes absurd. Most of the items we purchase are manufactured overseas, using cheap labor, only to be shipped from thousands of miles away. The gear is then trucked to a local corporate-owned retailer who charges ridiculous prices! This process is damaging to the environment AND our wallets!

Now that the gear is purchased, why not sell it in a local manner, from neighbor to neighbor? It can be passed forward, after our great experiences, for others to enjoy.

Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. is committed to helping local soldiers and their families. 50% of the sale of donated gear is given directly to non-profit organizations assisting local military veterans. 5% of consigned gear is given to the same causes. For more information, visit the Military Assistance page on this web site.

The recession has changed the way we spend. It is no longer feasible to pay excessive prices for high-quality gear. Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. makes it easier to enjoy your passion for the great outdoors.

Consign with us. Shop with us. Donate to our military cause. Together, we can make a difference for the planet and each other.

We are now open and accepting your too small climbing shoes, replaced fishing rod or "we'll take it out again someday..." kayak! Come visit us 10-6 at 1005 S. Tejon Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80918.

Thank you for visiting Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. We appreciate your feedback.
