First ever car seat recycling event

Do you have an old child car seat or booster seat taking up space in your garage? Recycle it at the Chisago County Public Works Facility on Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Chisago County Department of Environmental Services/Zoning and is running in conjunction with the Composter/Rain barrel sale held at the same date and site.

The seats will be recycled by the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) through a Minnesota Vocational Center where 95 percent of the seat is recycled and not landfilled.

The $10 fee per seat covers the cost to recycle, as the process to dismantle them is labor intensive, but required in order to recycle the metal, strapping (used in purses), and plastics.

For more information call 651-213-8920.  Payment accepted at time of drop off or pre-pay at the RAM website with a credit card at: www.recycleminnesota.org, click on “Rain Barrel Sale,” choose “Chisago County” sale, click on “Order Now,” and then choose “Car Seat Recycling” option.
