Abandoned Shopping and Luggage Trolleys

These anti-social practices can be dangerous, cost money to sort out and contribute to making the environment less attractive for everyone.

Recent amendments to the Environmental Protection Act 1990 mean that North Hertfordshire District Council can now reclaim costs from stores for the collection and disposal of abandoned trolleys if collected by the Council.

Please contact the Community Safety team if you are a store who would like to register with the abandoned shopping trolley collection scheme.
