Most people know that carseats expire after as early as 5 years, but did you know there are safer, and more eco-friendly ways to dispose of those seats??? Legacy Health offers FREE carseat recycling.
What’s new is that they now ask families to strip from the car seats all fabric, webbing and soft foam (these parts are not recyclable) prior to bringing in the car seats for recycling.
Legacy Health is offering two events in the near future for car seat and bike helmet recycling:
- Saturday, September 19, 2009: 10am to 2pm as part of the Healthy Kids Fair at Legacy Mount Hood. The car seat recycling will be across the street from the main fair at Saturn East (3265 SW Sundial Ave., Troutdale 97060).
- Saturday, October 3, 2009: Car seat safety checks and recycling from 10am to 2pm at Legacy Meridian Park.
