Return your trolley, Report abandoned trolleys!

Residents are urged to help keep our streets free of dumped trolleys.

Trolleys belong at retail complexes, not abandoned on streets or lost in parks and waterways.

Of those trolleys abandoned and reported to Council, most are left within one kilometre of four major shopping complexes in Wyndham.

Shoppers are reminded that if they need to walk their shopping home, an alternative like buying a foldable trolley should be considered as abandoning a trolley is an act of littering and residents can be fined up to $ 395.

How are we working with retailers?

Our Community Amenity Local Law 2023 gives Wyndham City the authority to fine retailers $395 per a shopping trolley if they are not collected within three days of being reported. This change to the local law aims to ensure retailers take more responsibility to claim those trolleys abandoned.

We’re asking retailers across Wyndham to be responsive to reports of abandoned trolleys. In particular, we’re focusing on four areas to help shoppers understand the importance of not abandoning trolleys and are working with retailers in these areas to pick up the trolleys.

The four retail complexes we’re focussing on are:

  • Pacific Werribee, Hopper Crossing
  • Sanctuary Lakes Shopping Centre, Point Cook
  • Tarneit Central Shopping Centre, Tarneit
  • Manor Lakes Shopping Centre, Wyndham Vale

Trolleys should be returned to retailers or if spotted in streets reported to their retailers as directed below:

What is a foldable trolley?

Residents who need to walk their shopping home are encouraged to find an alternative, like buying a foldable trolley which are commonly used at markets.
