Have an old car seat you'd like to get rid of? Or perhaps your child needs to upgrade to a new size?

In honor of Earth Month, Target is holding a car seat trade-in event at stores across the United States.

From April 22 until May 5, people can bring in their old car seats and receive a coupon for 20 percent off a new seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller. Coupons can be used in store and online.

The used car seat can be placed at the drop-off box located near guest services, where an employee will give customers a coupon. 

Customers will be allowed one coupon per seat, and the coupon is eligible through May 19, 2018.

The old car seats will be given to a waste management company to be broken down for parts and recycled to create new items like grocery carts, plastic buckets and construction materials.
