Environmental problems Abandoned vehicles

Report an abandoned vehicle

If you believe that a car, van or any other vehicle has been abandoned, report it to us. If there is an emergency, e.g. spilt petrol or live electrical wires call the Police on 101.

Once removed, a letter is sent to the last known owner of the vehicle. The owner will be charged for the statutory removal and storage fees. If the vehicle is not claimed within 21 days it will be scrapped.
