The Act

Commentary on Sections

Part 9: Miscellaneous
Shopping and luggage trolleys
Section 99 Abandoned shopping and luggage trolleys

252.Section 99 amends Schedule 4 to the Environmental Protection Act 1990 so as to enable a local authority to charge the person believed to be the owner of an abandoned shopping or luggage trolley for its removal, storage and disposal. Prior to this section coming into force, charges were only payable by persons actually claiming the return of their trolleys. If proceedings were brought against a person for the recovery of such a charge, it was a defence for him to prove that he was not the owner of the trolley at the time it was removed.
