Car seats have an expiration date of about five years. Families are encouraged to destroy their seats after this five year period so the equipment will not be reused in the community unsafely.

Residents are invited to drop off their car seats to be recycled between April 14 and April 20 at the Lou Witzeman Public Safety Building, 8401 E. Indian School Road, or at Tempe Marketplace, from 8 a.m. to noon, April 22.

For more information, contact Public Education Officer Lori Schmidt at 480-312-1817 or lschmidt@scottsdaleaz.gov.

Scottsdale Public Safety offers seat inspections on the second and fourth Saturday morning of each month by appointment only. Child safety seat checks are not offered at Scottsdale fire stations without an appointment. To schedule an appointment, call 480-312-BABY.
