Decluttering and recycling car seats

I have 2 expired sunshine kids Radian 65 seats and 1 expired roundabout from a friend that I plan to get off my back porch and take to the recycling center next week.
What can I save from the radians? I still have a Diono radian with many years left. Sure stop? Pads?
Covers won't fit my RXT. Does anyone need radian 65 covers (FFS?)
What about angle adjusters? I have 3 but will only need one know.

Same questions for the roundabout. I could save the cover but I have no usage for it personally.
Should even bother to keep anything from these seats or just let it all go? I can't believe I got those radians almost 8 years ago. Thanks, CSO - I never would have heard of them without you!

Radian- no to the safestop but the pads and cover can be saved. I don't think angle adjusters expire so if they are in good shape, they can probably be passed on. I found mine to get out of shape pretty quickly and didn't find it to have a super long useful life.

As for the roundabout- cover and pads.

If you have another seat you can use stuff on, I'd probably keep the covers and pads. If not, you can try selling the stuff here or offering it up free for shipping, depending on how you want to do it. Letting someone reuse the covers is probably preferable to throwing them in the trash, as I don't think covers can be recycled anywhere.

Save the locking clips! I am sure a local tech would take them (or offer them ffs here.)
