Often shopping trolleys are taken by residents from shopping precincts and left dumped in and around the City’s spaces.

Shopping trolleys taken outside of shopping precincts can be hazardous and unsightly. Abandoned trolleys often obstruct the road or footpath and have the potential to cause damage to property or may end up in local waterways, causing build-up of debris and restricting water flow.

To reduce the impact on the local environment we ask shoppers to return trolleys they use, and for everyone to take the time to report trolleys which have been abandoned.

Proactive action taken by Council

To assist in addressing this problem, the City of Canning Ranger and Community Safety Services routinely reports abandoned trolleys and impound shopping trolleys in accordance with the City’s Consolidated Local Laws.

Your responsibilities

If you use a shopping trolley, it is your responsibility to ensure the trolley remains in the shopping centre precinct and to return it to the designated trolley collection point. A person who leaves a shopping trolley in a public place or on the verge causing an obstruction to the public place or verge commits an offence.
