Walmart is launching its first-ever car seat recycling event Monday, joining the popular initiative conducted by rival Target.
From Sept. 16-30, customers can trade in used car seats at the service desk of any of thenearly 4,000 participating Walmart stores. They'll get a $30 Walmart gift card that can be used in their stores or online for baby items.
There's a limit of two trade-ins per household and booster seats are not eligible. The gift card is only good through Sept. 30. Not all Walmart stores are participating, so call ahead to be sure your store is doing it.
Target's car seat trade-in program concluded last Friday.
Also, Walmart is opening its first 10,000 square-foot “Walmart Health” center that features an array of primary medical services, dental care, and behavioral health services as part of a new model expected to eventually be replicated in other markets.
The first such “Walmart Health” brand center opened Friday in Dallas, Georgia, as a health facility offering more services than the 19 “Care Clinic s Walmart has already operated elsewhere in Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. Walmart executives say the new Walmart Health center is different than earlier clinics that take up about 1,500 square feet inside the store. The retailer says the Care Clinics remain an important part of their healthcare offerings, but are more limited in service.
