STOMPer Leo was concerned that an increasing number of people were bringing NTUC trolleys home after shopping there, and then dumping those trolleys around their estate.
Said the STOMPer:
"Singapore is a lovely city to stay in, because it is a safe country to stay in and people get to share good lifestyle together.
"And its "so convenient" especially when you go shopping, that you can actually push the NTUC shopping trolleys home.
"Lately, its kind of getting serious matter for shoppers (some could be housewifes, some are maids) to just "conveniently" push their full NTUC trolley back home after their shopping in NTUC supermarkets.
"I think this is a very inconsiderate action.
"Imagine if everyone will to start pushing the NTUC trolleys home, the genuine shoppers in NTUC will have lesser trolleys to use.
"Maybe you may say that you are buying a lot of things from NTUC and so you need to bring the trolley home.
"I don't think this is a valid reason.
"So what if you are buying a lot of things? What you pay for is not even enough to pay for the cost of each NTUC trolley.
"May be some users may push back the trolleys after such usage, but in most of the cases, these push-away NTUC trolleys are actually left stranded at staircase landings, balconys, void decks and even in rubbish dumps!
"Take a look at the photo here, the maid is happily pushing the full load of trolley back home, while enjoying her conversation via her ear-piece.
"It's most likely that this trolley will be gone forever.
"I suppose this is considered as theft by NTUC?
"Well, I don't know ... maybe no one will say anything because its so convenient, and everyone (at least many people) are doing it.
"It is such a disgrace to Singapore to see NTUC Trolley thefts but nothing is done to stop them.
"Maybe a fine may help? I would like to hear other STOMPers opinions.
