Are you curious about what to do with old, damaged or unused child car seats? Now you can take part in a child car seat recycling trial scheme! It is estimated that over 200,000 seats are disposed of each year in Australia and over 90% of the seat itself can be recycled.

Remember to dispose of your child’s car seat if it is more than 10 years old or has been in an accident. 

By taking it to one of the participating centres listed below, the seat will be taken out of circulation, guaranteeing that someone else won’t be using an unsafe child car seat and that it will be responsibly recycled.

Share the word with friends, family, and your community!  At this time, the trial is scheduled through 30 August 2017.

 Participating centres in NSW :

  • Penrith Community Recycling Centre: Gate 3, 96 Dunheved Circuit, St Marys
  • Kiama Community Recycling Centre: 446 Riverside Dr, Minnamurra
  • Tamworth Community Recycling Centre: 123a Forest Road, Tamworth

Other trial sites are located in Victoria and Queensland.
