Coun­cil con­fis­cates aban­doned shop­ping trol­leys

Monthly Chronicle - - Front Page -

Hornsby Shire Coun­cil has taken de­ci­sive ac­tion to solve the prob­lem of aban­doned shop­ping trol­leys, col­lect­ing more than 450 trol­leys from the streets of Hornsby.

It is dis­ap­point­ing to note that Coun­cil have spent more than two years ne­go­ti­at­ing with the su­per­mar­kets and other cor­po­ra­tions who have al­lowed these trol­leys to lit­ter the streets, but un­for­tu­nately the talks have not re­sulted in any change.

The trol­leys are be­ing stored at Coun­cil’s de­pot. Re­tail­ers will be able to col­lect their trol­leys once a fine has been paid.

Given the num­ber of shop­pers vis­it­ing the stores com­ing up to Christ­mas, re­tail­ers will soon run out of trol­leys. Hope­fully this will force them into ac­tion to pre­vent the move­ment of trol­leys out­side of the re­tail cen­tres.
