Abandoned supermarket trollies will no longer be causing an eyesore under a new scheme unveiled by West Norfolk Council.
The town hall is working with Trolley Collection Services (TCS) on a three-month trial in a bid to prevent anti-social behaviour problems.
A total of 71 trollies were collected from areas around the town during the first week of the partnership, which started on October 14.
Deputy leader Brian Long said incidents of anti-social behaviour or flytipping follow on from a trolley being dumped.
He said: “This scheme will definitely help to keep areas of the town tidy.
“We have made a great effort previously to get the area around St Nicholas Retail Park in North Lynn tied up and this is an economical way of helping that.
“It was surprising the number of trollies collected in the first week. You expect the first week to have a high number but TCS said in their experience the problems tend to continue. It is a shame we have to do this.”
The majority of trollies belonged to the town centre Sainsbury’s along with Morrisons, Asda and Gaywood Tesco.
The council charge supermarkets a £100 levy which is split with TCS. To report an abandoned trolley contact the council on 0500 253 2687.
