Trolley Track: annoyance over abandoned shopping trolleys

FOR the past few months an abandoned shopping trolley sat on the grass verge on the corner of Mary Street near the IGA.

“Despite calls to the council, no-one removed it,’’ resident Marianne Stevens said.

“Strange this as I had a few bricks sitting on a verge at the end of my front garden and all of a sudden a ranger appeared to ask me to remove them – only about four bricks.

“However, an unsightly trolley can linger there forever.”

We asked the council for a comment and the trolley appears to have been almost immediately collected.

According to the council, illegally dumped waste was an eyesore and an annoyance to those living nearby and big penalties applied to those caught illegally disposing of waste.

Acting chief executive Tony Free said the City worked with various trolley collection agencies throughout Mandurah to ensure identified trolleys were removed as quickly as possible.

People can report abandoned shopping trolleys directly to the retailer via the Trolley Track website or app or the Coles Collect website or app.
