PRIZE WINNER: Dianne Wilson was delighted to win a trolley tracker monthly prize.

Dianne Wilson, of Port Augusta, has won the monthly prize from Trolley Tracker, netting herself 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!

Dianne takes notice of abandoned trolleys when she’s out and about in the Port Augusta city centre. She has made a habit of noting down the trolley locations and then reporting them when she is back at her computer via the Trolley Tracker website. This is a fantastic effort that benefits the whole community, making Dianne a well-deserved winner of the $1000 reward. Trolley Tracker’s SA Project Manager, Helen Ford 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,” she said.

Trolley Tracker is an information service providing a free call 1800 number, website and phone app for members of the community and councils to report wayward trolleys.
