Report Abandoned Shopping Carts


Does this look familiar? Abandoned shopping carts get left at bus stops, parking lots, and empty lots and they are adding to the clutter and debris in our community. The Mayor and City Council passed an ordinance giving Environmental Services the authority to go out and collect the shopping carts left behind. We need your help to locate the carts so we can get them off our streets. Here's how you can help:

  • Call 792-CITY or 791-3171 to report the location of a cart
  • Download the My Waste app and use the Problem Report option

Once we have been notified of the location, our contractor will investigate and will tag the cart and notify the store management. If the cart is not properly marked, it will be picked up and taken away. If you would like more information, call ES Customer Service at 791-3171.
