How many Aldi shopping trolleys do you see away from the car park? None I have seen. Why? Because they have a value & to use one you need a paid token so they are returned to recover the token.

In many European countries, all the trolleys are in one location in the car park. A 1 Euro coin is needed to access them & returned when the trolley is put back. If the lazy couldn't be bothered I am sure many others would & earn about $2. Supermarkets gain by not collecting trolleys from streets & around the car park & put back into the store. In some European countries, electronic technology prevents the trolley from leaving the car park and supermarket baskets leave the store..
