TrolleyWise

Why Are We Needed?

Trolleywise is a specialised operation providing a range of retrieval services which help reduce shopping trolley losses from retail stores across the UK.

Apart from the costly loss of asset, trolleys are often abandoned in roads, on walkways and in parks with many are even dumped in local waterways, rivers and canals where they can cause harm to wildlife and the general environment. This is an unwelcome hazard to the public and under UK laws can attract substantial fines.

Do Your Bit!

Wanzl has launched a new initiative calling on members of the public to help report abandoned trolleys by downloading the brand new free-to-use Trolleywise app. You simply take a photo using the app alerting the nearest Trolleywise collection team - we will then do the rest!
