Melrose Kids Inc. is excited to announce Alberta's first recycling program for used and expired car seats.
We are now accepting all used and expired seats at various drop-off locations, round-up clinics and community clean-ups in and around Calgary. Kidseat Recyclers is the first recycling program of its kind in Alberta focused specifically on keeping the thousands upon thousands of car seats that are thrown away every year out of the landfills. We will ensure that every part of the seat that is recyclable, including metal, plastic and any usable parts, will be properly recycled or reused.
Mandatory Recycling Levy Fee: $10 per car seat as of June 1st, 2011.
Please e-mail or call if you have any questions.
UPDATE - Children’s car seats and booster seats: How long are they safe?
Calgary, we are heading out very soon to numerous community cleanups to collect children's car seats for recycling.
*Levy has been subsidized differently for each community association.
Please remove all fabric and material from car seats before dropping off for recycling.
Check out our events calendar on our website for upcoming recycling dates.
