Durable Medical Equipment


Back In Use recycles assistive equipment by taking in donations of Durable Medical Equipment (DME) like wheelchairs, walkers, and hospital beds and gives them to those in need.

All equipment is inspected, cleaned, and sanitized before given to community members. Click here to donate or request equipment.

We rely on donations of durable equipment to pass on to those in need. Equipment must be in good working order as we do not repair equipment.


Drop off hours are Tuesday-Friday, from 9am-3pm at 1520 First St. NW

You can reach us at 505-341-7171 for further questions.

Benefits of Back In Use

Help for Those in Need

Back in Use is beneficial to our community. Medical equipment is provided to people in need, which saves medical costs and helps the individuals who need these items to maintain their independence. Adelante Back in Use provides equipment for people who need it, free of charge to the end user. Adelante is not a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) dealer, so we cannot fill prescriptions for equipment. For certain devices we do require disability documentation.

Providing Jobs

Jobs are provided for people with disabilities through Adelante Back in Use including picking up, sanitizing, and distributing durable medical equipment.


Thousands of pounds of recyclable material are kept out of landfills every year and truly put “Back in Use” in our community.  Items that were formerly sitting unused in spare bedrooms and garages or would have been thrown away can now benefit others in the community.
