Target is currently in the midst of their 2020 trade-in car seat event that’s happening around the country. This annual occurrence started back in April 2016 and since has recycled nearly 1 million car seats. To date, through trade-in programs like this, Target has recycled more than 14.4 million pounds of materials, and is looking to continue that this year. While you’ve still got time, check out these deals to benefit yourself and the world around you!
The car seat trade-in program means you can trade in your old car seats at Target and receive a 20% OFF coupon towards certain products. You must be enrolled in Target Circle to qualify for the coupon, because this year everything is done contactless and done through the app. The event started Sunday, September 13 and is lasting through Saturday, September 26.

Although it is not confirmed yet, Walmart is expected to hold their car seat trade-in event once again, sometime this month. In the past, you could receive a $30 Walmart gift card for trading in your old car seat. You could then use that gift card for a new one. All car seats collected in this program were recycled through TerraCycle, and each component was be diverted from the landfill.
UPDATE: According to Terracycle, the Walmart Car Seat Recycling Event has been for now put on hold this year due to the global pandemic. For any changes to the program, we recommend you follow the official Terrycycle website or Walmart online.
