Abandoned vehicles

It is illegal to abandon a vehicle on a road or any other land. The same law applies to abandoning touring caravans, trailers or parts of motor vehicles. Report abandoned vehicles to your local district council who will arrange to remove the vehicle.

Report it

If you notice an abandoned vehicle, please report it to your local district council who will arrange to remove the vehicle. Find details of your local council through www.gov.uk/report-abandoned-vehicle

How to dispose of a vehicle

To dispose of a vehicle, you should take it to a licensed scrap yard where it can be recycled and disposed of. You must ask the dismantler for a certificate of destruction. The Environment Agency (08708 506506) will have details of your nearest fully licensed dismantler.
