Re: Buckle Up Bears (Airdrie) We regret to advise that after 5 years of running Buckle Up Bears, we have decided not to proceed with the car seat clinics this year. It takes a lot of time and manpower to continue to arrange for the training and coordinate the clinics and giveaways and update the manuals, etc With our baby last year and staff changes, it has been difficult to maintain the program.Kimberley Acheson, Rockyview Insurance Services, Airdrie.

Contact LaVonne Ries to arrange a car seat clinic in your area. Phone: 403-969-1054 or email: info@keepinbabysafe.ca

Green Their Ride

“Until now, car seats were only good as long as the purchasing family had babies or toddlers to lug. Now, Calgary’s Keepin’ Baby Safe recycles and arranges donations of used car seats.”

Keepin' Baby Safe with Melrose Kids Inc. are excited to be launching our new RECYCLING PROGRAM

Kidseat Recyclers is the first recycling company in Alberta that will ensure your child’s old car seat is properly disposed of with all the plastic being re-chipped and put back into the marketplace. No more filling up our landfills!!!

Now, all we need are your seats!!
Kidseat Recyclers will be holding periodic recycling depots to collect your unwanted seats. Please check our website www.kidseatrecyclers.ca for dates and times of the depots, or simply contact us at (403) 969-1054, Toll-free: 1 (888) 969-1054 and we can provide you with more information.

Our program is a fantastic community service and we are happy to be offering this option for parents and families. The type of plastic that is being recycled does have a recycling levy of $4 per seat; $2 per base and we charge a minimal $2 to strip the seats. (If you would like to strip them yourselves, we will waive the $2 fee, but please keep in mind that they need to be completely free of all metal, material, etc.)
