About the Trolley Enforcement Project
Last month, NTUC FairPrice launched a new initiative called the Trolley Enforcement Project to tackle the problem of trolley abandonment.
Over the past two years, 1,000 trolleys have been lost from over 90 stores each year.
This led to an estimated $150,000 spent on replacing and retrieving the abandoned trolleys.
The pilot Trolley Enforcement Project aims to educate the public on responsible trolley use and deter trolley abandonment.
A total of 10 trolley enforcement officers patrol the perimeter of the malls in shifts throughout the day.
Since the scheme was introduced, FairPrice has seen more than 85 per cent drop in the number of trolleys collected.
