Yuba City nets 453 abandoned shopping carts in three hours

Published: Monday, Feb. 24, 2014 - 10:47 am

It took just three hours last week to collect 453 abandoned shopping carts in Yuba City, the start of a campaign to make the Sutter County community a bit neater.

About 30 city staff members, along with a personnel hired by the California Grocers Association, performed the shopping cart round-up last Wednesday. The carts were strewn around the city, including at apartment complexes and shoved into landscaping.

The carts were gathered and then stored at the city’s corporation yard. City employees will be contacting retailers to let them know they can pick up their carts in the next 45 days.

City employees also removed illegal signs on utility poles to reduce blight. The round-up is one of several “Clean and Safe” programs that Yuba City is planning in the next several months.
