If you have an old car seat lying around, or if your growing child needs a new one, you may want to trade it in to your local Target store.

Target stores in Wichita, and across the country, are hosting a car seat trade-in event in honor of Earth Month.

From April 22 through May 5, you can bring in any unwanted car seat to participating Target stores and get a 20 percent off coupon. That coupon can be used for any new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller at Target.

Here's how the trade-in process works:

  • Bring your old car seats in to the drop-off box near Guest Services at any participating store. All stores, excluding small-format stores, are participating. You can find participating stores in your area at www.target.com/c/kids-event-stores/-/N-i9dn5
  • A Target team member will then give you your coupon. You can get one coupon per car seat that you drop off.
  • The coupon is eligible through May 19 both in store and online.
  • Target will take the car seats to Waste Management, who then recycles the materials to create grocery cars, plastic buckets and construction materials. Since the program launched in 2016, more than 176,000 cars have been recycled, according to Target.
