Shopping Trolley

Abandoned trolleys can cause significant environmental issues as well as being a hazard for pedestrians, motorists and wildlife. They can also pollute waterways and obstruct the flow of water.

What can I do to help?

To help reduce the number of abandoned shopping trolleys you can do the following:

  • If you use a trolley to transport your shopping home, after use take back to the store.
  • Once you have used the shopping trolley, leave it in a sensible location such as a trolley bay in a supermarket or store car park, ready for collection by the store.
