"Safety- especially car seat safety - is a top priority for Walmart's Baby department, so we wanted to use our size and scale to create an event that offered unprecendented access to trade in an outgrown car seat for a gift card - perfect for using on your baby's next car seat. Sustainability is of equal importance to Walmart, so we're happy to work with TerraCycle who will recycle every component of the car seats", said Melody Richards, Vice President, Walmart Baby.

All car seats collected in this program will be recycled through TerraCycle and each component will be diverted from the landfill, the statement said.

“Through the Walmart Car Seat Recycling Program, traditionally non-recyclable car seats are now nationally recyclable,” said Tom Szaky, CEO and Founder, TerraCycle. “We are proud to work with this forward-thinking company to offer families from coast-to-coast a way to give their car seat, the item that has kept their little ones safe, a second-life. Through this event, we expect to divert the plastic equivalent of approximately 35 million water bottles from landfills.”

Not available at all Walmart Neighborhood Market locations. Limit of 2 gift cards per household. Booster seats not eligible for trade-in.
