Guide to Abandoned Shopping Trolleys
Chichester district remains a picturesque place to live and work however, there are problems with abandoned shopping trolleys discarded on the streets, waterways and open spaces. This has an adverse affect on the scene of individual neighbourhoods. They are used in anti social behaviour and pose a danger if left in a road. The problem is a constant irritation to residents and the district and Parish Councils. A lot of resources are currently being wasted on returning trolleys to individual stores.
Currently Chichester District Council has no responsibility to collect abandoned shopping trolleys.
However, the major supermarkets have either teamed up with Trolley Collection Service (TCS) to collect all trolleys dumped within the district or they use their own staff to collect them.
If you find an abandoned trolley, you should contact the supermarket in the first instance. If they do not remove it in a reasonable amount of time, you can report it to us on the following telephone number; 01243 534598.
