NORFOLK -- February is child safety seat recycling month. 

For the 23rd straight year, old, used and potentially unsafe seats will be collected and recycled at month's end.

As an incentive, you'll receive a $5 Walmart gift card for each seat (maximum 2 per person) you turn in.

All seats will be recycled, eliminating their future use and giving you a "green" way to get rid of the item.

Virginia law requires children under age eight to be properly restrained in an approved Department of Transportation child restraint.
