The toy recalls keep coming and frustrated parents are left with toy boxes full of dangerous trinkets. Many donâ€™t want the hassle of boxing up the toys and returning them to manufacturers (but donâ€™t forget, doing so will score you vouchers to buy new, safer toys). For those who donâ€™t want to tote recalled toys to the post office, Contra Costa County has rolled out drop-off sites in several cities. Please, for the sake of our environment, make use of these sites. Tossing lead-based toys into the trash means they end up in our landfills and can harm our environment.
For more information about site locations, read the story in todayâ€™s Times. For full details on which toys have been recalled, check out the consumer products link at www.recalls.gov.
