Recycle your old car seat! Drop-off @ 8401 E Indian School before 4/21 or Tempe Marketplace from 9am-noon on 4/22.

HELP SAVE THE PLANET BY RECYCLING YOUR OLD CAR SEAT

Scottsdale Fire Department has partnered with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Safe Kids of Maricopa County and other sponsors for the “Keep our Planet Neat Recycle your Car Seat,” Earth Day 2010, event.

Car seats have an expiration date of about five years. Families are encouraged to destroy their seats after this 5-year date so the equipment will not be reused in the community unsafely.

The second annual Recycle your Car Seat event invites community members to donate their old car seats to be recycled correctly. All parts of the seats will be dismantled and recycled appropriately at Tempe Marketplace, April 22 (Earth Day) from 9 am-noon.

Scottsdale residents may also drop off their car seats through April 21 at the Lou Witzeman Public Safety Building, 8401 E. Indian School Rd. The seats will then be taken to the event on April 22 in Tempe for recycling.

For more information, contact Public Education Officer Lori Schmidt at (480) 312-1817 or lschmidt@scottsdaleaz.gov.
