Now you have the power to clean up Britain’s streets and turn trolleys into trees through a new free smartphone app that targets the ‘Blight of Britain’ - abandoned shopping trolleys with independent charity Trees for Cities.
The aim is to eliminate the problem altogether by swapping abandoned trolleys for trees, creating a positive impact and returning pride to local communities.
For every trolley collected by Trolleywise, Wanzl will make a donation to independent charity Trees for Cities, hoping to raise enough money to plant at least 2,000 new trees in Britain’s urban areas.
Since 2010, Trolleywise has reunited more than one million abandoned trolleys with UK retailers – saving millions of pounds in lost assets.
Trolleywise currently has a fleet of 41 vehicles Nationwide which patrol hot spot dumping grounds in local communities, retrieves trolleys and returns them to store.

Ratings and Reviews
Great concept, but can't a) zoom a picture, b) choose an existing photo, c) amend the location details, d) allow logging when no network coverage.
Keeps saying there's no location information despite showing a dot precisely where I am located!
For future, would be useful to provide some feedback on what happened to the trolley I reported (was it picked up, reported to local authority, reported to the retailer, or nothing.
Works ok for a while
App works ok for a while and is exciting when you report a trolley (yes I'm easily pleased). After a while you get a message saying the app would like to use location in the background. This has happened twice and each time after answering yes to the question the app no longer sends reports and says there is an error and to check settings. This I have done but the only way to resolve the problem is to delete the app and download it again which means you've lost your ranking for all the trolleys you have previously reported.
Help stop trolleys going missing!
If you use this app you can help supermarkets keep the cost of their services down. Did you know a small trolley cost £150? And a big one cos £300? And some special ones can cost £500.
So next time you take a trolley out of its way thing of what impact that has on costs but also the enviroment!
