Infant and Child Safety Seat Recycling Program

Participating in the state's first program, Shade Tree Garage accepts infant and child safety seats for recycling. Residents can drop their disassembled child safety seats at our shop between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm, Monday through Friday. As an added incentive to recycling these car seats, we will offer a $3.00 discount on oil changes, when you bring your expired child safety seat to our location. Anyone who would like to take advantage of the oil change discount should call us at 973-540-9880 to schedule an appointment.

Why is it Important to Recycle Infant and Child Safety Seats?

Most people are unaware that car safety seats expire five to six years after production. The plastics used in these seats deteriorate over time from sun and heat exposure and the seats become unsafe for use. Also, if a car seat has been in an accident, its protective qualities may be further compromised. If you find a used car seat in a consignment or thrift shop, there's no way of screening them to know if they have expired or been in an accident. You may be putting your child at risk.

Recycling Programs Around the Country

There are approximately one hundren car sfety seat recycling programs across the country. Some of the first programs were organized by Colorado Children's Automobile Safety Foundation, Legacy Health System in Portland Oregon, and Recycle Utah. Web searches for your state should turn up information on available programs in your area.
