Target hosts car seat take-back collections for two weeks in May and in September. The most recent is September 13-26, 2020. Drop off in the designated area near guest services. A 20% off coupon for another car seat or select baby gear is available upon trade-in.
All types of car seats are accepted, including infant car seats, convertible car seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats, as well as car seats that are expired or damaged.
Materials from old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management, to create new products like pallets, plastic buckets and construction materials like steel beams and carpet padding.
