To help slow the spread of the coronavirus, Council is taking a number of public health precautions including closing many of our facilities.

Abandoned trolleys in Randwick

Randwick City Council encourages residents to help reduce the number of trolleys abandoned on the streets. Unfortunately, the cost of collecting and replacing abandoned trolleys is ultimately paid for by the customer in higher prices at their favourite stores.

Did you know? It's an offence to abandon an item in a public place, and that includes shopping trolleys.
