Take Your Old Car Seat to Target and Receive a Coupon for an Upgrade

By  | 

“We’ve been putting them online to sell, them, nobody wants them. We were going to put them on the side of the curb and hope someone takes them,” Crystal Yeater told ABC Action News, talking about the inconvenience of infant and child car seats. Parents go through several sizes of car seats while their child grows up, and upgrading this vital piece of safety equipment can be expensive and frustrating. But Target stores hope to alleviate some of the car seat stress by offering car seat recycling and upgrade opportunities through the end of the month of April.

Parents will want to act fast on this deal. ABC 13 says that Target stores participating in “Target Take Back” will allow people to bring in their old car seats and drop them off in a designated recycling area until April 30th. From there, parents can receive a 20 percent off coupon towards a new child car seat purchase, good through the end of May. ABC 13 says, “The program is a new initiative between Target and TerraCycle to help keep car seats from ending up in landfills.”
