An article authored by Christopher Scali on KCWY13.com titled ‘Recycle Car Seats’ appeared on March 20, 2016 as follows: “According to Consumer Reports, many of the 12M car seats Americans buy every year eventually end up in a landfill, but car seats can actually be recycled. Jason Katzmann says there is no place Wyoming that can recycle them because they are made of a number five plastic. A group has decided to make a recycling day; the group Veni-Vidi-Duci came up with this idea when they took a field trip to the Casper Land-Fill. Katzmann asked them about car seats, because he discovered that car seats can’t be resold or given to other people. These actually have expiration dates and then we have to dispose of them.
People around Natrona County are disposing their old car seats incorrectly, so they are filling up a semi-truck to ship them off. Katzmann says working together as a group and as a community we can actually make a difference! He estimates that this is going to save about 5,000 cubic feet of landfill space. One Veni-Vidi-Duci, Bridger Dyer wants to save as much landfill space as possible and says the approximate goal is about 1,800 car seats. Car seats do have an expiration date. So before you put your child in your car seat think about the condition and how long you’ve had it. Vehicles in the summer time can be over 150 degrees and the cold winter temperatures in the can cause micro-fractures. Also, if a car seat has been in accident over 5 MPH it can cause micro-fractures.
Katzmann says the number one thing were worried about is making sure children in Natrona County and across the state are safe. They want to bring attention to the idea that a lot of us are driving around in car seats that really should not be used anymore. The Veni-Vidi-Duci science club collected 110 car seats which can be recycled in Utah to create other plastic items. Casper city land fill officials will continue to collect car seats.
