Get a $30 Walmart gift card for recycling car seat

Mary Ann Thomas

Walmart and TerraCycle are partnering on a recycling program offering $30 Walmart gift cards to be used for baby merchandise for customers turning in an old car seat from Sept. 16-30.

All car seats collected in this program will be recycled through TerraCycle, and each component will be diverted from the landfill, according to a news release issued by Walmart.

This first-ever recycling and gift card program for Walmart is being done in conjunction with National Baby Safety Month.

TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky said he hopes the recycling event brings in enough car seats to “divert the plastic equivalent of approximately 35 million water bottles from landfills.”

Customers can trade in used car seats at the service desk in participating Walmarts, which includes stores at the Pittsburgh Mills, Harrison and elsewhere. To find a participating store near you, visit the car seat recycling webpage.

The $30 gift cards can be used in store or online.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
