Car Seat Recycling Locations

We are very excited to announce a new car seat recycling program at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. This is another way we can keep kids safe while also doing our part to save the environment. Many parents don’t know what to do with their infant carriers and car seats once their children have outgrown them, their seats have been in a crash or are too old to use.  The new car seat recycling program at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital provides parents a way to dispose of unneeded, damaged or unsafe seats while addressing the three R’s of the green movement—reduce, reuse, recycle.  Since there are approximately 12 million car seats purchased each year, you can imagine how many seats wind up in our landfills.

Below is a list of our community partners committed to keeping kids safe and helping the environment.  Please refer to the list to plan the most convenient drop-off location for your unusable seats.  For more information or to schedule at a location not listed below, call 216-844-2277, choose option 5 and leave a message. One of our staff members will get back to you to coordinate dropping off the seats or answer your question. A copy of the locations can be found here.
