GAWLER Council is working with the
town's major supermarkets to clean up
abandoned shopping trolleys littered
around the town.
The issue of discarded shopping trol-
leys scattered around Gawler, including
the town's river beds, was raised at Gawler
Council's meeting last month.
Willaston resident Julia Mannix made a
passionate deputation at the meeting, call-
ing for council to take action over the illegal
"It's a big issue and it seems to be getting
worse," she said.
"I think it's about time that the Gawler
Council -- or even the local police -- got in-

markets, come up with an effective strategy
to ensure their trolleys remain in their car
parks and not littering our streets, paths and
Ms Mannix regularly walks along the ur-
ban paths by the Gawler and North Para riv-
ers and said she often saw dumped trolleys
in the rivers, recently counting a staggering
13 discarded trolleys during one walk.
Popular dumping grounds are located
near the footbridge at Willaston and around
the back of the Gawler Oval complex be-
tween the two footbridges at Gawler West.
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman said coun-

"We have spoken with all the shopping
centre managers that use trolleys about the
"Again we would like to reiterate that if
you find abandoned trolleys, call the local
store manager and report the trolley, or go
online to Trolleytracker.com.au or the ma-
jor supermarket websites."

"Gawler certainly is ahead of the pack at
the moment because that main street is a
case study in terms of how things can be
done very well," Mr Gannon said.
"One of the good signs from the outset
is that there aren't many vacancies on the
main street, which is great.
"There are a number of regional
main streets where these main streets
