SAN ANTONIO – Target is bringing back the car seat trade-in program, which allows guests to trade in old car seats for a 20 percent coupon toward a new one.

The coupon can be used on a new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller.

The trade-in program kicked off Sunday and will run through Sept. 22.

New this year, however, is the addition of baby products the coupon is also valid toward -- things like play yards, high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers.

All Target stores are participating, with the exception of small-format stores.

Since the program launched in April 2016, more than 306,000 car seats have been recycled.

Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management, to create new products such as grocery carts, plastic buckets and construction materials such as steel beams and carpet padding, according to the Target website.
