Let the Recycling Begin!
On April 22nd, Safe Kids Maricopa County will hold their annual Keep Our Planet Neat, Recycle Your Car Seat Demolition event. This annual event is where volunteers will be on hand to dismantle hundreds of car seats. Last year 1,000 seats were recycled! Sponsored by NARPRO and Advance Auto Parts and other local title holders and volunteers will be on hand to dismantle car seats. All metal, plastic parts and material items will be recycled. This year the event will be held at High Tech Care Care.
Did You know?
Most car seats expire within six years of the manufacture date. Plastic car seats break down over time – especially in the Arizona sun. The harness can break through the car seat if a car seat is used past its expiration date. Garage sales and trash cans are not the answer to unwanted, old car seats – de-manufacturing and recycling is. Car seats do a great job protecting children, but at the end of the seat’s life they contain many materials that could be recycled. Last year, more than 1,000 car seats were recycled, which helped to keep expired car seats out of vehicles and out of Arizona landfills.
