Schneck announces car seat recycling effort

Schneck Medical Center is holding car seat recycling event next month in Seymour.

Schneck officials say that most car seats expire six years after its manufactured date. They are holding this event in an effort to ensure expired seats are not reused or re-distributed throughout the community. Hospital staff explain that the car seats will be recycled at a secure location?, preventing anyone from picking up and reusing the seats.

Schneck’s Car Seat Recycling Event will be held on June 15th from 9 a.m. to noon behind the Schneck Cancer Center. You don’t have to worry about parking, as you can simply pull up and staff will take the seats you’re dropping off.

For more information on the Car Seat Recycling Event or for information on how to properly install a car seat, call Schneck’s Family Life Center at (812) 522-0435.
