ELLENBROOK resident Carol Paterson has won $1000 to spend at any Woolworths Group store for reporting stray shopping trolleys in her neighbourhood.

The monthly Trolley Tracker prize is for those helping to find trolleys that have been misused and abandoned.

Ms Paterson, who has experienced some trying times recently, managed to maintain her dedication to reporting abandoned trolleys in the area despite it all.

Trolley Tracker acting WA project manager Lyn Hall said working with community-minded residents and efficient collection teams help keep streets and parks attractive and safe.

“This also reduces the risk of trolleys making their way into waterways,” she said.

Wayward trolleys can be reported online at trolleytracker.com.au or call 1800 641 497.
