Child car seats should not be reused and should be discarded after their expiration date due to liability concerns.
The Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) previously had a program created a solution to safely and securely recycle child car seats. The REseat program is no longer accepting car seats at this time. Car seats should be placed in the garbage. Be sure to make the car seat unusable by cutting the straps to reduce the possibility of someone trying to use it if it is past the expiration date.
