BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — For parents looking to either get rid of an old car seat or upgrade a size for a growing child, Target is doing their car seat trade-in event.

Customers can bring in any unwanted car seat to Target to receive a coupon for 20 percent off a new car seat, booster seat or stroller. The coupon will be eligible from April 22 to May 4.

Target says shoppers can bring any used car seat to a drop-off box located near guest services and a team member will give you a coupon.

Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant car seats, convertible car seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats, as well as car seats that are expired or damaged.

The company has been holding the event each year since 2016.

Since the program launched, hundreds of thousands of car seats have been recycled.
