Did you know you can recycle your old car seat?

Children's car seats can be taken to Fergy (Ferguson Street recycling centre) for $5 a pop. They're recycled by SeatSmart – a social enterprise in Hawke's Bay. The car seats are dismantled and the different components are used for different things. See this poster for more info.
