Shopping Trolley

Gosport has suffered from high numbers of abandoned and dumped shopping trolleys.

To tackle this issue the Council has recently (January 2020) adopted a provision created by Schedule 4 Section 99 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Gosport Borough Council will arrange for abandoned supermarket trolleys to be removed from public/private areas as they constitute a hazard and are environmentally unsightly. 

Stores will be charged for the cost of removing, storing and disposing of them.

To report an abandoned trolley please contact Streetscene on 08000 198 598 or by email to streetscene@gosport.gov.uk
