Have an old car seat lying around? Whether it’s too small for your growing tot, too old or simply time for a new model, Target will gladly take it off your hands…again! After the popularity of our first car seat trade-in program this past April, we’re teaming up with our friends at TerraCycle to recycle your used car seats, just in time for National Baby Safety Month. We’re committed to ensuring that kids and babies have the right car seats that meet current safety standards and we’re always looking for ways to make recycling easy. So what better way to accomplish both, than with one stellar program?
“After collecting more than a million pounds of car seat material to be recycled from the program in April, we’re excited to be bringing this amazing program back,” said Michelle Wlazlo, senior vice president of apparel and accessories at Target. “We’re always looking for ways to make the lives of our guests easier and we’re proud to be able to help them reduce household clutter in a responsible and environmentally-friendly way.”
From Sept. 10 – 23, most Target stores (excluding small-format stores) will accept car seats to be recycled. In turn, guests will receive a 20 percent off coupon, good for the purchase of a new car seat, including booster seats, car seat bases and travel systems.
As the only mass retailer to recycle car seats, we were seriously impressed with our guests’ interest in recycling — we collected over a million pounds of car seat material that was recycled into dozens of new products. Check out more of the impressive stats from the April program, below, and get ready to recycle!
