Target’s annual car seat trade-in event began Monday and runs through May 4 at most stores, including the one at 4500 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond.

Folks who trade in old car seats will receive a 20 percent off coupon toward a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or select baby home gear, such as playards, high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers, according to Target.

“Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and car seats that are expired or damaged,” the company said. “Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management.”

Coupons received after bringing an old car seat to a Target store can be used for both in-store and online purchases. The coupon is eligible through Saturday, May 11.

Target launched the car seat trade-in program in 2016, and has since recycled about 500,000 seats. Over 7.4 million pounds of materials have been recycled through Target trade-in programs, the company said.
