Did you know that it is illegal to remove a shopping cart from the property of its owner? Help us stamp out shopping cart blight!
Shopping carts should not be removed from store parking lots. In addition to being a costly item for stores to replace, carts left on the parkway, sidewalk or street can be a potential hazard for pedestrians and drivers, and are a blight to the community. Persons removing shopping carts from private property can be issued a criminal citation if caught in the possession of a cart.
