In April 2016, Target launched its very first car seat trade-in event. Since then, the big box store has recycled around 500,000 car seats. And now, your next chance to contribute to that number — and save some cash — is here. Target just announced its next car seat trade-in event, happening at most Target stores from April 22 (Earth Day!) through May 4, 2019. Not only will bringing in your child's old car seat help keep it out of landfills, but it will also help you score a 20 percent off coupon that can be used on a slew of Target baby and child items.

As explained on Target's website, Target is partnering with Waste Management, North America's biggest environmental solutions provider, on the recycling event. Waste Management will collect all car seats that are dropped off during the event, and recycle them into new plastic items. With the car seats from Target's September 2018 trade-in event, Waste Management created new items including plastic pallets, plastic buckets, and carpet padding.
