Tom Blenkinsop MP today (4th July) welcomed the decision by Tesco Extra in Coulby Newham to implement a coin operation system at the store from 19th July as part of the stores latest effort to cut down on the number of abandoned trolleys in the area.
“I’m pleased that Tesco have finally taken this necessary step to prevent trolleys being abandoned on streets. It was an issue that was blighting areas of Coulby Newham and Hemlington and I had contacted Tesco on numerous occasions to get to grips with the problem.
“Whilst magnetic brakes would be the most ideal solution, I’m confident that the action taken will prove a success and no longer will abandoned trolleys be a feature of the community.”
In the meantime, a trolley collection service is available on 01329 882210 at no cost to the customer other than the original call.
