The Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team in Danbury collects shopping carts, and UNIT officials say if need be, takes them away from people pushing them downtown. This past month, their downtown enforcement officer collected a total of $345 from stores retrieving their carts back from city storage. Danbury adopted a shopping cart ordinance several years ago. Errants carts are brought to the Public Works Department and can be picked up after paying a storage and retrieval fee. The storage fee is $2 per week, not exceeding $50. There is a $10 retrieval fee per cart. In 2013, the issue came to a head when one owner cut the chain off the carts in the middle of the night and took them back without paying the fee.
