Cobourg Police Service Announces Community Initiative to Clear Abandoned Shopping Carts

Since May 1, 2024, the 2024 Downtown Action Plan comprises a series of proactive crime prevention measures alongside ongoing harm reduction programs. Enforcement of laws and regulations will be a critical focus, particularly in interactions requiring direct intervention due to specific actions or behaviours of individuals.

The Cobourg Police Service are announcing a new community initiative aimed at addressing the issue of abandoned shopping carts throughout the Town of Cobourg. In collaboration with local businesses and apartment complexes, we are taking action to ensure that our streets, parks, and properties remain clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.

The Initiative: The “Cart Reclaim Project” will see the collection and return of shopping carts that have been left on properties other than retail locations they belong to. This initiative not only helps to beautify our community but also prevents potential hazards these carts can cause when left unattended.

Community Involvement: We encourage all residents to participate by reporting any abandoned shopping carts they encounter. Your vigilance and cooperation are vital to the success of this project.

Report Abandoned Carts: If you spot an abandoned shopping cart, please call the Cobourg Police Service at 905-372-6821 or email Sgt. Janice MacDonald at Janice.macdonald@cobourgpolice.com Your timely reporting will assist us in promptly addressing the issue.

Pick-Up Date: The scheduled pick-up date for the abandoned shopping carts is set to commence on 18th day of May 2024 at 08:00hrs. We ask property owners to ensure that any carts on their premises are ready for collection on this date.

The Cobourg Police Service would like to thank the community for their continued support and cooperation.

Together, through collaboration we can maintain the beauty and safety of our beloved city.
