Shop - Food. Please, Sirs, can we have our trolleys back

Shop - Food. Please, Sirs, can we have our trolleys back? 586 supermarket trolleys stand wet and rusting. They were picked up on the street and taken into custody by a council that sees them as a danger to pedestrians and motorists. Every day, the collection grows as the council snatch squad at Sutton Surrey, brings in containers dumped by careless shoppers. However, now they have competition. The stores are sending out teams of their own to try to grab back their trolleys before the council get to them. Tesco and Sainsbury each reclaim about 100 every night compared with the councils twenty. Even so, a Tesco spokeman protested "the council are cheating. They're not supposed to start snatching until at least 7pm, but we have evidence they are doing it in daylight." Shops want all their £40 trolleys back. The council is offering to return them at a price of £5 each. The stores say no. In case they set a nation wide trend. Under arrest: the wayward trolleys surveyed by Williams. January 1983 P018782
