BALTIMORE — Between September 10 and 23, 2017, Baltimore area residents can recycle used car seats! In celebration of National Baby Safety Month, 1,700 Target stores nationwide and across Maryland are hosting car seat collection programs to help residents reduce household clutter without sending waste to landfills. All car seats collected in this program will be recycled through TerraCycle so that each component will see a second life.
Residents should bring their car seats to participating Target stores and look for Target’s car seat collection box in the front of the store or in the baby/kids floor pad section. When a customer turns in a used car seat, They will receive a coupon for 20 percent off the purchase of a new one. After the recycling program ends, TerraCycle will separate the different components of the car seats (cloth elements, plastics, metals, etc.) and process them for use in other products.
Participating Target locations in the area: 3201 Tioga Pkwy in Baltimore; 3559 Boston Street in Canton; 11200 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills; 1737 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville; 1238 Putty Hill Avenue in Towson; 9901 York Road in Cockeysville; and 1911 Towne Centre Blvd in Annapolis.
