Child Car Seats

(Last Updated: 4/1/2019)

Old and expired car seats go in the garbage. If they won't fit in your garbage cart, take the seat to a county disposal facility or schedule a special pick-up with your waste hauler.


Target stores sometimes have child car seat recycling events. Check their program website for dates and then call your local store directly to ask if they will participate.


If the child car seat has been in a traffic accident, check with your insurance company. Many insurance companies will reimburse you to replace child car seats when a vehicle has been in a accident.
