Report stolen and abandoned supermarket trolleys in Australia: ACT, NSW, NT, Qld, SA, Tas, Vic, WA
1 March 2011
Most Australians care for their beautiful country and would agree that abandoned shopping trolleys are not just making streets and local surrounds look neglected, but also can become an environmental hazard to bushland, creeks and waterways.
Luckily, besides always returning the trolley to the supermarket’s trolley bay, there is a an easy way to contribute to neatness of Australia: report any lost, stolen or abandoned trolleys to the trolley collection service. It can be done very quickly online: all you need is to tell the name of the shop the trolley belongs to and the location of the trolley.
I have the following links in my Web browser’s favourites and use them to report every trolley I see left outside any shop’s premises:

Franklins in NSW
IGA in WA (some)
Giving your contact details in the report form is optional and only required if you want to participate in the prize draw. Otherwise, just fill the trolley details, leave your contact details blank, tick “I accept the Terms and Conditions” and enter the captcha code.
August 2013 update:
The reports are forwarded to collection teams around the country. The trolley collection teams retrieve the trolleys and return them to the relevant store. Reporting a trolley, which would otherwise have to be replaced, helps reduce waste and costs that otherwise would have been passed onto customers.
Thank you for your collaboration and care for Australia.
