As the biggest shopping trolley manufacturer in the world, we feel it is our responsibility to make sure that every trolley manufactured gets used for the maximum amount of time - not stolen, abandoned or misused. Every year, over 500,000 shopping trolleys, more than 11,000 tonnes of metal, are stolen - abandoned trolleys are hazardous to both members of the public and wildlife. We believe, together with the retailers, that we should take a responsible approach to this national challenge as we see it as the right thing to do.
The dependable shopping trolley needs your help! In 2017 alone, more than half a million shopping trolleys were retrieved from green spaces, waterways, public footpaths and roads.
