ARKANSAS (KNWA) — Earlier this month, Walmart and TerraCycle teamed to host a car seat recycling event in about 4,000 stores nationally. The event proved to be so successful that customers now have an extra day — Sept. 21 — to trade-in their car seat.
The event was supposed to end Friday, September 20.
Customers get a $30 Walmart gift card from participating stores and there is a car seat limit of two per household.
Nearly 1 million car seats are expected to be recycled. TerraCycle said, “this means it’s the equivalent of more than 200 million plastic bottles from landfills.”
