Often shopping trolleys are taken from shopping precincts and dumped in public places.

Shopping trolleys taken outside of shopping precincts can be hazardous. Abandoned trolleys often obstruct the road or footpath and have the potential to cause damage to property. They may also end up in local waterways, which is harmful for the environment and often restricts water flow.

To reduce the impact on the local environment, please return all trolleys after use. If you see an abandoned trolley, please take the time to report it.
