Current e-Petitions for the Legislative Council

Removal and Abandonment of Shopping Trolleys

Eligibility : Residents of Western Australia Only

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned ...

The Spearwood Progress Association Incorporated along with other volunteer Cockburn Community Groups and the undersigned residents of Western Australia - call upon the Legislative Council of Western Australia to conduct a parliamentary inquiry into the removal and abandonment of shopping trolleys within the City of Cockburn and the state of Western Australia.
We are seeking uniform and stringent shopping trolley containment state laws.
1. Investigate the effectiveness of the current local government act in addressing abandoned shopping trolleys
2. Engage with retail stakeholders and shopping centres to investigate current practices
3. Investigate other states/territories and if necessary overseas jurisdictions' current measures/practices to circumvent this issue
4. Recommend the implementation of stringent and uniform shopping trolley containment laws for the whole of Western Australia.

And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
