Target’s Car Seat Trade-In Event Returns this Weekend
In honor or Earth Month, Target has announced the return of their car seat trade-in event, which kicks off on Sunday.
And the answer to your first question is, yes! The Target location at the Berkshire Mall will be participating an employee told us on Thursday.
The annual event is meant to make recycling your old car seats easy, while getting the opportunity to save money on a replacement.
According to Target, here is how it all works:
- April 22 through May 5, bring any unwanted car seats to your local Target store and receive a coupon for 20 percent off a new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller from our stores or online
- When you get to the store, bring your used car seat to the drop-off box located near Guest Services, and the team member there will give you your coupon. Guests can get one coupon per seat dropped off, and the coupon is eligible through May 19, 2018.
- We’ll get the old car seats to our partners at Waste Management, who will recycle the parts to create new things like grocery carts, plastic buckets and construction materials.
Due to car seats not being eligible for curbside recycling programs, the changing of regulations, car seats expiring every six years and seats that aren't in perfect shape in need of immediate replacement, Target implemented this program in 2016. Since then, they have collected 176,000 car seats and recycled them into new products.
"Events like these are part of Target’s commitment to taking care of the planet and designing solutions across our business to make our products and services as sustainable and circular as possible," said the company on their event page.
