11th Annual “Keep Our Planet Neat, Recycle Your Car Seat” Event
Date(s) – 04/04/2019 – 04/18/2019
NARPRO is partnering with Safe Kids Maricopa County and other local organizations to collect old, expired, and damaged car seats, which volunteers will take apart for proper recycling. Car seats don’t last forever, and over time their components will break down, especially in the hot Arizona sun.
Older car seats or those that have been involved in an accident, may not have visible damage showing, but they should not be used. This annual event helps those with older, expired, or damaged car seats get rid of them in an environmentally-friendly way, by keeping them out of vehicles and landfills. Last year, nearly 1000 car seats were saved from unsafe use and dumping.
Residents can drop off their car seats that need to be recycled at one of our participating Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals shops from now until April 18, 2019. We will be recycling them on April 20th at Good Works Auto Repair located 2348 E Broadway Rd, Tempe, AZ 85282.
