Recycle kid car seats for free

Wisconsinites can recycle their old child car seats at no cost Saturday.

The Safe Kids Wisconsin coalition has arranged for businesses in six states to accept old and broken safety seats. The coalition discourages people from selling or handing down older car seats that might be broken. Instead, recycling collection sites will take those car-seats tomorrow in Madison, Eau Claire, Wausau, Marshfield, Plover, and Oconto. Sites in La Crosse and Onalaska will take the old car seats the following Saturday, April 27th.

The coalition says that car seats older than six years will be recycled – along with those which are broken, involved in crashes, or just unwanted.

More information is available online at SafeKidsWi.org. Wisconsin has had a state law for several years requiring younger kids to be placed in car safety seats while traveling.
