Reading council is to start fining supermarkets £15 for every dumped shopping trolley it recovers. Lets hope this will see some action, less pollution in the river.
The Newtown area, where trolleys have been found on the pavement, in the road and in rivers, is one location being targeted by the council.
The new charges are likely to come into force from July.
Councillor Rob White said: "Since fining trolley owners was raised a little while ago the situation has improved.
"I hope introducing this measure will be the final nail in the coffin for this blight."
Under the plans, the council would charge £15 for removal, £7.50 a week for storage, £15 for returns and £50 to dispose of a trolley.
