WARNBRO resident Scott Leach has won $1000 to spend at any Woolworths Groups store from Trolley Tracker.

Trolley Tracker has been trying hard to salvage the sometimes bad reputation of the humble, but very useful, shopping trolley by providing a way for people to report trolleys that have wandered far from stores.

Trolleys can be misused and abandoned, but for Mr Leach, reporting one of these much-maligned trolleys has resulted in a $1000 reward.

Mr Leach’s job requires him to spend much time on the road and he began to notice many abandoned trolleys left around the city.

After hearing about Trolley Tracker from a workmate he got straight onto downloading the Trolley Tracker mobile app and has been a dedicated reporter ever since.

Trolley Tracker’s WA project manager Helen Ford said working with community-minded residents and efficient collection teams we can help keep streets and parks attractive and safe by having trolleys picked up quickly. “This also reduces the risk of trolleys making their way into waterways,” she said.

Anyone can report wayward trolleys online anytime at www.trolleytracker.com.au, by using the smartphone Trolley Tracker app or calling 1800 641497.
