STRAY SHOPPING CARTS
The City of Azusa’s beautification program reminds us that it is a violation of the Azusa Municipal Code to use a shopping cart to take groceries to your home. The City’s shopping cart ordinance strictly prohibits the removal of shopping carts from the premises of any supermarket, parking lot or store in the city. Despite this ordinance, shopping carts are continually being taken from most stores and are eventually abandoned on city streets or alley ways.
Individual businesses and the City of Azusa incur significant costs to retrieve or replace missing and damaged carts. Abandoned shopping carts can cause accidents and create an unattractive and blighted appearance through-out our community.
If you see an abandoned cart in your neighborhood, you can have it removed by simply calling 1 (888) 787-CART (2278) or by using this convenient website to report it:
