Abandoned Trolleys

Shopping trolleys are provided for patron use by various retail establishments. Shopping trolleys that have been removed from the shopping precinct can pose a risk to both pedestrians and drivers and have a negative impact upon the visual amenity of the streetscape.

Persons found abandoning shopping trolleys in a public place will be given an Infringement Notice and are liable for a fine of $200.00.
