Target Car Seat Trade In Program

Why is Target hosting a Car Seat Trade-In Event?

To help save the planet! The car seats you turn in will be recycled by Waste Management which will turn your old seats into things like shopping carts, buckets and construction materials!

Target has held several recycling programs like this since 2016 and has recycled 1.7 MILLION car seats which equals out to 25.4+ million pounds of waste that DID NOT end up in land fills! Pretty cool.

So, how does the Target Car Seat Trade-In program work??

During the program dates, you can drop off your old car seat at one of the car seat collection boxes near Guests Services at your local participating store. Make sure you’ve already registered with the Target Circle program to save time. There will be scan sheets near the collection boxes to scan into your Target Circle account from your phone.

Pretty simple process and it’s a win-win since you get to save $$ while doing a small part to save the planet!

We knew we already loved Target, but now we love them even more!

It’s staggering. The certified car seat inspector shares important tips and advice on what to look for in your new car seat or booster seat along with some other great safety tips you must hear!
