Questions and Answers

How do shopping carts get abandoned, anyway?
People “borrow” them. But people should know that removing carts from a store’s parking lot – or even possessing a cart without the store’s permission – is illegal and subject to a substantial fine.

What can residents do?
First, don’t be part of the problem. There are many “personal carts” available, and most are inexpensive – much less than the potential fine for taking a store cart.
