Is it time to upgrade your kiddo’s car seat? Then you’ll definitely want to hit up Target’s car seat trade-in event!
From Sun. Sept. 12 through Sat. Sept. 25, shoppers can drop off their old car seats in designated drop-off boxes located near Guest Services at most Target stores (in-store drop-offs only!). In exchange, you’ll get a coupon to use through the Target app or target.com/circle for 20% off a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or select baby home gear, such as playards, high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers that can be used both in-store and online.
Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and even car seats that are expired or damaged. Not only do you get a great deal on a new item, but you’re also helping to create less waste as Target’s partner, Waste Management, will recycle materials from your old car seats.
Since the program began in 2016 over 22.2 million pounds of car seat materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
So if you’ve got that old car seat sitting around that isn’t accepted through your own curbside pickup or has expired, head to Target starting Sept. 12. The environment will thank you.
