If you have an old car seat that needs to be replaced, you can get some help toward buying a new one.

On Sunday, Target will kick off its annual car-seat trade-in event. The retailer will give you a coupon for 20 percent off the purchase of new items – including car seats, booster seats, car seat bases, travel systems or strollers – in exchange for used seats.

The event, in its third year, starts on Earth Day and runs until May 5. Target is partnering with Waste Management to have the old seats recycled.

"Events like these are part of Target’s commitment to taking care of the planet and designing solutions across our business to make our products and services as sustainable and circular as possible," a release on the retailer's website reads.

Coupons must be used by May 19. Check here to see participating stores.
