(WTNH) – Target and Walmart are holding events in September to help keep car seats out of landfills.
In connection with National Baby Safety Month in September, car seat trade-ins are being held at both retailers.
Walmart will host its first-ever car seat recycling event Sept. 16-30. Customers can trade in used car seats at the service desk at any participating Walmart and receive a $30 gift card that can be used in-store and online to buy baby items.
