Children’s car seat recycling subsidy

Covid-19 – please note that the end-of-life children’s car seat recycling programme is currently suspended 

 Recycle an unneeded child’s car seat for minimal cost.

Materials from these seats can be easily recycled and made into useful new products, and the recycling process creates opportunities for social enterprises across New Zealand.

From 1 February 2019, Nelson City Council is offering a subsidy against the cost of recycling a car seat, bringing it down to $10 per seat (previously $25). This service is available in Nelson through Baby On The Move. You can contact them directly to access the subsidy.
