Abandoned trolleys are costly for Councils

Learn how you can save money for your Council by reporting through Trolley Tracker™

For some local government authorities, abandoned shopping trolleys can become a thorny issue from time to time. Abandoned trolleys don’t just make residential streets and parkland untidy, but the time taken to manage, tag and sometimes impound these trolleys can be a burden when there are many demands on Council resources. In this regard, Trolley Tracker™ can help.

Trolley Tracker™ is a professional information service that has been solely dedicated to recovering abandoned trolleys for over 20 years. With over 150 local governments across Australia reporting to Trolley Tracker™ we have the experience and systems in place to help council officers tackle the problem of abandoned shopping trolleys head-on!

Independent of the retailers we work with, Trolley Tracker™ has been able to build close working relationships with council staff, trolley contractors, and store managers to better facilitate open communication between parties when trolley matters arise.

Trolley Tracker™ knows how costly chasing up abandoned trolleys can be; both in time and money. So we give the highest priority to all council reports received through the Trolley Tracker™ System. We’ve developed exclusive tools, promotional materials, and procedures to ensure that your council reports are delivered to collectors and trolleys picked up as fast as possible.

We can also provide templates for educational materials to help change community attitudes and promote the responsible use of shopping trolleys.

And here’s the icing on the cake. Trolley Tracker™ is a completely FREE service for Councils! So why not use us and save your Council time & money, as well as tackling the issue of wayward trolleys.
