Please do not put them in either your garbage or recycling bin.
In our ongoing effort to reduce the amount that goes into landfills, here are some tips on what to do:
1. Contact parents you know, list on a resell site such as Craigslist, or donate to a donation center. BUT — Safety first. If it is no longer approved or in a safe condition, please use one of the following methods.
2. Drop your car seat at the Gurnee Police Department. http://www.littlelakecounty.com/car-seat-recycling-in-lake-county/ They will dismantle it and send the plastic to companies for recycling.
3. Send them to http://www.babyearth.com/renew They’ll make sure everything is properly disassembled and all usable parts are sent to recycling centers.
4. As a last resort, and if you absolutely have to, dismantle it as much as possible so it is completely unusable and put the pieces in your garbage bin. This way nobody can garbage pick an unsafe product.
