Abandoned shopping carts are an eyesore to Union City neighborhoods and can be dangerous to the children who play in and around them. Stray shopping carts left on streets and sidewalks can cause accidents. Businesses pass on the cost of retrieving shopping carts to you (the consumer).

We need your help to keep Union City beautiful by not removing shopping carts from parking lots and keeping our streets and neighborhoods free of abandoned carts.

To report an abandoned shopping cart on the
street or sidewalk, please call

(510) 675-5308
Please be prepared to report the location (street address or nearest cross streets) of the shopping cart(s).


If you have been authorized by a store to remove a shopping cart, you should return the shopping cart to the store and not abandon it in a neighborhood or business district.

The unauthorized removal of a shopping cart from a store parking lot is a violation of State law. (California Business and Professions Code, Section 22435).
