Car Seat Recycling Drop Off Event!

Drop off your used car seat for recycling or reuse.

WestSide Baby, 10027 - 14th Ave. SW, Seattle, 98146.

Hundreds of people in our area need car seats. Children outgrow them,
and need different sizes until they can sit in an adult seat.
Westside Baby and Waste Management are teaming up to recycle
or restore and reuse car seats that you no longer have a need for.

They have people who can clean them, fix them and make them
useful for someone else. Drop them off between 10:00 a.m and 2:00 p.m

and THANK YOU!
