CSC is an outfit who scraps cars throughout the counties of Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga in Northeast Ohio. Aside from being an excellent location among those who scraps cars, we strive to provide the latest relevant news relating to the vast auto scrap industry. Our next topic involves the recycling of old, junk car seats and is based in the area of Cedar Falls and Waterloo, Iowa. A November 2, 2015 posting on wcfcourier.com titled ‘Project to collect and recycle child car seats’ composed by Andrew Wind reported the following: “Child car seats have become common in vehicles of parents with young children. The limited period of use means the seats are either discarded or pile up in homes when no longer needed. Volunteers led by Boy Scout Sam Wright, offered a solution outside of the Cedar Falls Visitors’ Bureau. Outdated seats could be dropped off with the crew to be dismantled & recycled; vehicles pulled up to the group next to the bureau’s parking lot. The volunteers immediately got to disassembling them with screwdrivers, wrenches, etc… Materials were sorted into bins for plastic, metal & fabric.
A recycling center in Tipton will handle the plastic & metal and the fabric is going to be re-purposed. The intent was to reduce the number of seats that ending up in landfills. Based on the number of children who live in the county, 28,000+ car seats could be destined for a landfill, amounting to 114 tons. Some people pass off their car seats to other parents when done with them. Getting those that have been used out of circulation is a safety issue. (most expire in five years) Seats are sometimes damaged in car crashes.
About 20 people helped throughout the collections. They printed 6,000 fliers, created a Facebook page & posted the information on several websites. Dan, Wright’s father and Janell Wright, Sam’s mom, said the volunteers have been determined. The complete article is available here.
