Abandoned Shopping Trolleys

Why are abandoned shopping trolleys an issue?

Abandoned trolleys can cause significant environmental issues as well as being a hazard for pedestrians, motorists and wildlife. They can also pollute and waterways and obstruct the flow of water.

We have found abandoned shopping trolleys in:

·         car parks

·         parks

·         bushes

·         side of roads

·         gardens

·         housing estates

·         waterways.

 

What can I do to help?

To help reduce the number of abandoned shopping trolleys you can do the following:

  • Don't use a shopping trolley to transport your shopping home.
  • Once you have used the shopping trolley, leave it in a sensible location such as a trolley bay in a supermarket or store car park, ready for collection by the store.
  • If you notice a shopping trolley abandoned please report it to the supermarket directly, or to the organisations listed below.
