  • Hmm, I do have some old car seats, what about engine blocks, can we drop them off too?

  • and maybe tires…

  • I have some truck seats. I’ll bring them by. Thanks!

  • Hey Kym! Maybe need some clarity here?!? At first read I thought they are looking for any seats that came out of a car. Yet this morning, after some reflection….. Seems that they are looking for CHILD CAR SEATS. Yes? (Upon looking at the graphic above, that conclusion is reinforced).

    • From the drawing on the poster and the sponsors I’m pretty sure that they only want CHILD car seats. However, I attempted to call both of the numbers provided and didn’t get an answer. I would suggest calling on Monday if you really think they might be accepting larger seats.

  • This sounds great but what about the recycle part? I would bring an old car seat but would love to exchange it for a car seat for older child.
