Safety

Car Seat Recycling Program

Recycle old, expired or damaged car seats to keep them off the road, and keep kids safe.

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), three out of every four car seats are installed incorrectly. Using a car seat correctly is hard enough – don’t compromise your child’s safety even further by using an expired or damaged car seat.

To download a printable brochure with this information, click here.

A modern, intact car seat is a child’s best protection in a crash.

Never reuse a car seat involved in a crash.

Car seats weaken over time from exposure to high-altitude sun and temperature extremes throughout the year.

Beware of recalled seats. There are currently more than 50 recalled car seat models listed on the NHTSA website.

Recycle your seat for FREE at any Car Seats Colorado drop-off location.

Used Car Seat Checklist

It pays to be sure. Do your research. Have your seat checked. When in doubt, recycle it.

Kids use an average of THREE CAR SEATS before moving to a standard seat belt. Reusing a car seat can be an option to REDUCE WASTE and SAVE COSTS, but only if you can answer “yes” to all of these questions. If not, please KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE by recycling the seat.

The car seat can be reused if it:

   Has not been in a crash and is not visibly damaged.

   Has all its parts, including hardware, harness and tether straps.

   Has an instruction book.

   Has not expired, has model number and a “made on” or expiration date.

   Has not been recalled. See a recall list on CarSeatsColorado.com.

  Has straps cleaned only with gentle cleaning products. 

  (Harsh chemicals can damage the straps and be hazardous to children.)
