Abandoned Shopping Cart Retrieval
Removing a shopping cart from the merchant’s property and abandoning the cart on the sidewalk or in a park is illegal. Abandoned carts create a potential hazard to the health and safety of the public, interfere with pedestrian and vehicular traffic and are an eyesore in the community.
Help clean Santa Clara by promptly reporting abandoned shopping carts. The best way to get shopping carts removed from your neighborhood is to contact the store to which the shopping cart belongs. The City of Santa Clara Street Department offers a quick reference guide with phone numbers for stores with shopping carts. In addition, All American Carts is a shopping cart retrieval service and can be contacted at 408-629-6030.
