For the past year, a group of citizens has been returning errant shopping carts to their rightful owners.
And the week ahead gives residents a chance to help out.
Organized by Yuba County Supervisor Andy Vasquez, the group picked up about 50 carts over the last year in the Linda and Edgewater community and retuned them to the stores.
“It’s something that has to be done, and someone has to do it,” Vasquez said. “Whenever I see a lot of carts all over the place, it’s time to do it.”
Linda and Edgewater abandoned shopping cart clean-up day is Saturday Nov. 4.
If you have an abandoned cart in your neighborhood, send the location to Yuba County Supervisor Andy Vasquez by Friday,
Nov. 3. Text or call 870-7509 or email email@example.com
Vasquez said there’s a handful of helpers who load up the misplaced carts, and he’s asking the community to let him know where the lost carts are located.
“People don’t understand how expensive those things are,” Vasquez said. “Walmart has a real serious problem with that, and the manager told me they’re trying to get locking wheels on them.”
