Please find below a response to the issue I have raised with the Environmental Action officer following the recent removal of the coin operation system on the Asda trolleys. 

“Dear Councillor Anderson,

I have spoken to the GSM of ASDA this afternoon about the issue of their shopping trolleys being taken from their store and left all around the Holtdale Estate. He has assured me that they intend to go back to the coin deposit for each trolley with the trolleys to be chained together to stop them being taken. There is however a substantial cost to this and he assures me that he is pushing for action from ASDA Head Office on a near daily basis.

I have arranged to meet with him on Friday 26 May 2017 to discuss the issue. He informed me that he should have more information for me then and I will update you further then.”
