Free Child Car Seat Recycling Pop-up Events

Did you know that in BC an estimated
85,000 - 100,000 child car seats end up in the landfill each year?

For a limited time at select BCAA Service Locations only, we've partnered with Queensborough Landing Return-It to provide British Columbians with a convenient and environmentally sustainable way to dispose of used or expired car seats, while benefiting children and families in the local community.

Recycling is easy!

Simply drop off your used or expired child car seat(s) for FREE recycling during the time of the event at the Service Location below. Plus, for every seat recycled, we’ll donate $5* to a local non-profit to help support programs and resources for children and families.

The drop-off area is located in the parking lot. No registration is necessary.

These are one-day events only!

BCAA is covering the usual recycling fee of $15 for seats dropped off at the events below only.

How we got started

In July 2021, BCAA partnered with ATMO Recycling, to collect used and expired child car seats at one of our interior locations. We kept over 600 child car seats out of the landfill and benefited Mamas for Mamas by donating $5 for every child car seat collected – raising over $3,000 to support mothers and caregivers with programs and resources. 

With the success of this pilot event, we want to offer British Columbians additional opportunities to recycle their used or expired child car seats at select BCAA Service Locations.

Together, we can protect our environment and benefit local communities!
