On a recent promo for the tv show "Bogan Hunters" it was stated by the host that the first indication that a suburb has a high proportion of Bogans living in it is...the number of abandoned shopping trolleys on the street!
Anyway, not wanting to be thought of as being a Bogan I thought that I better do something about an abandoned shopping trolley in a nearby road. It was left there by a migrant who didn't want to hire a car and pushed the shopping home from the local store
As it was a Coles trolley I called in the local store to ask about collection. They gave me the number 1800 876 553.
It took 3 calls but eventually the trolley was gone.
A much easier system (and maybe more rewarding?) for other supermarkets is the web site Trolley Tracker.
The details are:
There is loads of "interesting" info on the site "one trolley for every 11 Australians" for example!
If you report a trolley you go into a draw for a prize of 5 x $1000 per month.
Happy trolley spotting!
And you also help downgrade the offending suburb on the Bogan identification scale!!!
