Surprise tire shop collecting old car seats

Posted

The Network of Auto Repair Professionals is collecting old, expired and damaged car seats, which volunteers will take apart for proper recycling.

Surprise residents can drop them off at S&S Tire Surprise/Sun City West, 13323 W. Bell Road — one of five West Valley dropoff points.

Car seats don’t last forever, and over time their components will break down, especially in the hot Arizona sun.

Older car seats or those that have been involved in an accident may not have visible damage, but they should not be used. This annual event helps those with older, expired, or damaged car seats get rid of them in an environmentally-friendly way, by keeping them out of vehicles and landfills. 

Anyone can drop off car seats that need to be recycled at one of the participating Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals shops from now until Friday, April 16.

On April 17, Peoria police, volunteers and NARPRO shop owners will dismantle the old car seats at a private event in Peoria.

They will recycle the plastic, metal and fabric components separately. For example, elements of the fabric, padding, and straps can be used in animal shelters.

Quilted fabric becomes bedding or chew toys for the animals. Long straps make free leashes.
