    Re: Car seat recycling..

    Some, but not many. Most require you to strip everything that's strippable: the covers, foam, and straps. I noticed yesterday that my TrueFit has the recycling symbol on it, so according to my area's recycling rules it would just go straight into the recycling bin with the rest of our household recycling.

    I know Judi has a place by her that does the recycling. Have you asked Monstah? Local techs would be the most likely to know about what's available in your area.

    Thanks. Nothing near me. I am not supposed to meet up with Monstah until tomorrow. I will ask her if she knows somewhere.. It is just a booster.. the seat cover comes off easily. I think I will call my local recycling center too.
