The toy recalls keep coming and frustrated parents are left with toy boxes full of dangerous trinkets. Many don’t want the hassle of boxing up the toys and returning them to manufacturers (but don’t forget, doing so will score you vouchers to buy new, safer toys). For those who don’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 today’s Times. For full details on which toys have been recalled, check out the consumer products link at www.recalls.gov.
