The exponential increase in the number of shopping trolleys dumped in Australian streets is a disgrace. They litter the streets and can cause panel damage to parked cars. They are dumped in waterways, on roadsides and nature strips. They make our towns and suburbs look untidy and unloved.
In addition to being eyesores, especially when dumped in enviro-sensitive areas such as alongside streams or in nearby recreational bushland spaces, these trolleys are a hazard to pedestrians and traffic and cost retailers millions of dollars a year to replace, repair or return to the store.
If, like me, you’re sick of the sight of trolleys in your suburb then I encourage you to please sign the petition I’ve started on Change.org. 7
Feel free to share this link too. The more people who sign, the more Coles and Woolworths will have to take notice.
