Mark your calendar: Target’s next car seat trade-in event is September 3 – 13, 2019!
Target stores are again hosting their popular car seat collection program to help residents reduce household clutter without sending waste to landfills. All car seats collected through this program will be recycled so that each component will see a second life.
And what’s super neat is that when you recycle your car seat, you get a 20% coupon for a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or select baby home gear, such as playards, high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers (not just car seats as it was when the program began)!
Here’s what you do:
- Bring your car seats to your local Target store (search online for participating locations near you)
- Look for Target’s car seat collection box in the front of the store near Guest Services.
- Turn in your car seat (all brands will be accepted) and you’ll get a coupon for 20% off the purchase of a new one (or other baby gear product)!
Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and car seats that are expired or damaged. Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management.
To date, through trade-in programs, Target has recycled 11.98 million pounds of material, and counting!
(Note: Coupon pictured below is not a valid coupon)

SAVE AN ADDITIONAL 5%!
Also – be sure to use your Target RedCard to save an additional 5%! You can choose either the credit or debit card. I have a debit RedCard which just works as another bank card for my checking account, and I save 5% every time!
