See an abandoned shopping cart? Report it! Abandoned shopping carts at Lakewood street corners, parks and bus stops -- far from their home stores -- are eyesores, potential safety hazards and a loss for businesses. But a unique collaborative effort between businesses and the Lakewood Colorado City Government is a win-win situation that gets shopping carts off the street and back into businesses’ hands. People can report abandoned shopping carts using the City’s online customer service system. The reports go to a coalition of Lakewood businesses that picks up the carts and returns them to their rightful owners. To report an abandoned shopping cart in Lakewood, go to www.Lakewood.org/ReportCarts. People who prefer not to use the online method to report abandoned shopping carts can contact Kaitlin Gault at 303-987-7050 or KaiGau@Lakewood.org.
