Brisbane resident David Simmonds has won the monthly prize from Trolley Tracker™, netting a cool $1000 open order to spend at any Woolworths Group stores including Woolworths Supermarket, BIG W and Dan Murphy’s.
Trolley Tracker™ has been trying hard to salvage the sometimes bad reputation of the humble, but very useful, shopping trolley for many years now by providing a way for people to report trolleys that have wandered far from stores. Trolleys can be misused and abandoned, but for one local resident reporting one of these much-maligned trolleys has resulted in a $1,000 reward!
David was certainly happy when he was notified that he had won the monthly Trolley Tracker prize, replying “Wow, that is good news!”. David said he regularly reports abandoned trolleys and has been doing so for more than a few years now, so a $1000 open order prize definitely serves as a nice and just reward for his efforts. Congratulations, David!
Trolley Tracker’s QLD Project Manager, Lyn Hall said “working with community-minded residents and efficient collection teams we can help keep streets and parks attractive and safe by having trolleys picked up quickly. This also reduces the risk of trolleys making their way into waterways”.
Anyone can report wayward trolleys online anytime at www.trolleytracker.com.au, by using the smartphone Trolley Tracker™ app (available free from the App Store or Google Play) or simply by placing a free call to 1800 641497.
- Since Trolley Tracker™ began it has taken over 2 million reports from people like David helping to return over 3 million lost trolleys to their home stores, protecting the environment
- Information on an abandoned trolley is sent directly to one of hundreds of trolley collection teams around the country who retrieve the trolley and return it to its home store
- Trolley Tracker™ works with members of the public to report abandoned Woolworths, BIG W & Dan Murphy’s trolleys
- Associate Professor John Lucas and his team from the University of Newcastle report that production of 20 replacement shopping trolleys adds at least another tonne of carbon dioxide to the earth’s atmosphere… so saving trolleys reduces carbon emissions.
