There’s a large number of supermarket shopping trolleys being brought and abandoned into our community every day. Not only is it unsightly but it is not legal to remove the shopping trolley beyond the perimeter of the supermarket (which is why many of them are fitted with a wheel locking device). Some residents believe that Waitrose and other retailers have given permission for residents to take them which is not the case. The management team of Waitrose have said they only reason they come and collect them on a daily basis is because a significant number are abandoned on our estate. If you are struggling to carry your shopping then there’s personal shopping trolleys that can be purchased to help lighten the load.
Please help us keep our community tidy and leave the trolley at the shop where it belongs!
