Child Car Safety Seat Recycling

Equilibrium recently trialled a Child Car Safety Seat Recovery Program that offered parents a free and environmentally-friendly option for disposing of their old child car restraints.

Equilibrium recently trialled a Child Car Safety Seat Recovery Program that offered parents a free and environmentally-friendly option for disposing of their old child car restraints.

Equilibrium along with partners of the take-back program ran a successful child car seat recovery trial program with collection sites across Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales, with the collection phase operating from 1 July 2017 through to 16 October 2017. The program was able to remove unsafe or damaged child car seats from the market, divert the seats from landfill and recycle and recover materials.

The trial received funding and support from the Queensland and NSW Governments (Waste Less Recycle More Initiative), Victorian Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group as well as major car seat brands including Dorel and InfaSecure and automotive association representatives from RACV, NRMA, RAA, and RACT.

Ongoing work includes the development of a product stewardship scheme that ensures appropriate take-back and recycling of end-of-life child restraints that enables resource recovery and recycling as well as displaying social and environmental leadership.
