Coles Toowong gets big tick for trolley control

On Nine News the other night, one Nundah resident blamed the localised flooding in their street on junk, including a shopping trolley, blocking the storm water drain. Shopping trolleys, while incredibly useful devices, are unfortunately environmental vandals, with many ending up in drains and waterways, when they escape from shopping centres.

Hence it’s good to see that Coles at Toowong has taken steps to stop trolleys escaping, by installing a mechanism that appears to lock one of the wheels when the trolley reaches the perimeter of the centre (see the yellow thing in this picture):

Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman can chalk this up as a win, after having called on Coles to follow Woolies’s lead in this regard:

Onya Woolies, c’mon Coles
