Trolleywise is a specialist division of Wanzl, providing a range of retrieval services. Since 2006, Trolleywise has been tackling the issue of abandoned shopping trolleys, by pinpointing and patrolling the trolley hotspots throughout the UK, building an efficient and reliable collection service.
More than 500,000 shopping trolleys are taken from UK retailers and abandoned each year, costing British business a staggering £35 million, however we estimate that the scale of the problem could be almost double this, with closer to a million trolleys being taken and abandoned in towns, cities and rivers across the UK each year.
Wanzl's Trolleywise service has completely revamped its offer to meet the growing demand for dealing with abandoned shopping trolleys. As consumers increasingly call on retailers and manufacturers to manage their impact on the environment, Trolleywise is offering a technologically-advanced solution in the form of an easy-to-use and completely free app, to challenge this issue and provide the retrieval and return of perfectly serviceable assets back to their home stores.
We, at Wanzl, are committed to doing the right thing socially, ethically and environmentally and are calling on retailers and the pubic to help raise awareness of this issue by supporting our Trolleywise team in their mission to rid local areas, waterways, parks and communities of unsightly and hazardous abandoned shopping trolleys.
