Peace Region gets a chance to recycle old car seats

The Northern Environmental Action Team will be holding a Car Seat Recycling Round Up from October 14 – 20 in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Chetwynd. This is the first time a program like this has been held in the region. Previously, there was no way of recycling old or damaged car seats, so they ended up filling landfill.

However, Rosenau Transport has agreed that once the seats have been stripped of their cloth, seat belts and cushioning, it will ship the plastic to Kid Seat Recyclers in Calgary. Kid Seat Recyclers is the only company in the country that recycles car seats regardless of whether they have a recycling number.

There, the seats are broken down and sent to Merlin Plastics to be used again. Residents are asked to strip the car seats themselves before dropping them off at any of the three NEAT offices in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Chetwynd, where the plastic and metal will be accepted for recycling. Car seats will be accepted from Monday, October 15 to Friday, October 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
