Abandoned shopping trolleys

Shopping trolleys taken outside of shopping precincts can be hazardous and unsightly. Abandoned trolleys often:

  • obstruct the road or footpath
  • end up in waterways, causing build up of debris and restricting water flow

Report to the retailer

Retailers have systems in place to collect trolleys that have been removed from stores and car parks.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to report abandoned shopping trolleys to the relevant retailer in the following ways:

Your responsibilities

If you use a shopping trolley, it is your responsibility to ensure the trolley remains in the shopping centre precinct. Council may issue on-the-spot fines if you do not have a reasonable excuse for removing a trolley from a shopping centre precinct.
