Get your old outdoor gear repaired for free in Frisco this weekend 

Frisco is hosting a free gear repair day tomorrow at the Frisco Adventure Park. Bring one piece of outdoor gear for a free patch job – but only one – between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

There will also be axe sharpening, storage wax and simple bike repair. 

“We are extremely excited to host the spring gear repair fair and expand our offerings,” said Blair Miller, Frisco’s Museum Coordinator and Green Team member. “Last year we had a successful turnout, with many outdoor items getting repaired so they were functional again. 

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, 146.1 million tons of solid waste ended up in landfills across the country in 2018. Materials commonly used in outdoor equipment, such as plastics, leather and textiles, accounted for 29 percent of that waste.   

Here are all the details from a town of Frisco new release: 

Town of Frisco staff will be on site to patch holes and repair minor tears in outdoor equipment such as coats, tents, and backpacks.  

Rebel Sports will have a bike mechanic available for simple bicycle repairs.  

New this year, mountainFLOW eco-wax will be offering storage wax applications for skis and snowboards, and town staff will be sharpening machetes, hatchets and axes.  

There will also be a drop-off for climbing or approach shoes that need new soles. Shoes will be shipped to Rock and Resole for repair, and a small fee will be associated with this service.  

Finally, High Rhodes Records will be providing free restringing of any instruments at their shop located at 285 E Main Street in Frisco. 

Frisco’s Repair Fair was launched in 2022 by the town’s employee led sustainability committee, the Green Team. The event was inspired by existing programs developed by several outdoor gear manufacturers that facilitate the repair, reuse, resale, and recycling of used gear.
