OK, this Iím really excited about. Finally an answer to this age-old question: What do you do with that old car seat?
You should not give it to another child, because car seats†actually expire, usually around six years.†
What you should do, and can do, is recycle it.
From April 17-30, you can bring your old car seats to Target stores. The car seats will be collected and sent to TerraCycle to recycle. Look for a box at the front of the store or in the baby/kids section. You can also get a coupon for 20 percent off a new car seat. This is a perfect solution when itís time for a toddler to move out of the infant seat and into the booster seat.

TerraCycle and†Tomís of Maine also have a program where you can box off broken kids toys and have them recycled into tables and benches for parks.†
