Lyon County Environmental Dept and Advance Opportunities have partnered together since 2016 to bring infant/child car seat and mattress recycling to Southwest Minnesota. The car seat recycling program provides part-time employment opportunities for approx. 15 local individuals. Employees help to disassemble and sort the materials (like plastic, metal, foam and fabric) for recycling and some refer to it "like working on a puzzle"!
