Fix Auto Collision Partners with Legacy Health to Promote Child Safety

May 19, 2014  – -  PLEASE TAKE NOTICE:

Fix Auto locations have temporarily suspended accepting child car seats for recycling due to hauling challenges – we will update this post when we begin collecting again.

We apologize for any inconvenience – it is not feasible to reach all the online repostings of this information.

Please refer to the link below for locations at the top right of the flyer that are still accepting seats:

Portland, Oregon 97216 – Fix Auto Collision is partnering with Legacy Health to support child safety. The program promotes safety awareness and provides convenient recycling solutions for damaged car safety seats.

Replacement guidelines, which vary by manufacturer, are found in the instruction manual for the seat or by contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the seat label. In addition to post-accident replacement guidelines, most child safety seats also have an expiration date, which is generally only to accommodate one child.

“If people use these seats longer than the suggested life of the seat, there is a much higher probability the seat will not work properly, especially in the unfortunate circumstance that they are involved in an accident,” added Fix Auto Business Development Manager, Erin Gallant.

Through Fix Auto’s partnership with LKQ, the car safety seats will be collected from the Fix Auto locations and transported to the recycling center in an environmentally responsible manner.

“Partnering with Fix Auto Collision is beneficial on many levels,” commented Tammy Franks, Child Passenger Safety Coordinator for the Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel. “Auto body collision repair shops provide an appropriate environment for families to receive education on the need to replace car safety seats after a crash. Additionally, the partnership with Fix Auto Collision will add six new drop-off locations so families will not have to travel as far to recycle their seats.”

If you or someone you know would like to recycle a used or damaged car safety seat, please visit any Fix Auto Collision Oregon repair facility. Drop-off times are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, every Tuesday through Thursday.

About Fix Auto: Fix Auto is an international network of performance-based collision repair facilities. The local Oregon network consists of six independently-owned and -operated locations.

    Are you still accepting expired used child safety seats for recycling? I noticed the last update was in early February 2011.

  3. Camille Eber says:

    We are not aware of a way to ship child seats for recycling free of charge. Legacy Health Systems may be able to tell you if they have any recycling partners in your area.

    Legacy Car Safety Seat Recycling PDF. See the upper right three contacts.

    Is there anyway to mail or ship them free of charge? I have a couple and live in La Grande.

    Recycling of Child Safety Seats is STILL Going & VERY successful.

    Just want to be sure any of you checking to see if this program is still going – it is!

    Drop Off Locations: In above blog entry.

    Recycle your old, damaged or not needed seat – Camille
