If you believe that a vehicle has been abandoned or dumped in your neighbourhood, you can report it to your local council. 

What you need

The vehicle's:

  • exact location
  • make, model and colour
  • number plate (if available).

How to report

  1. Check if the vehicle is registered
    Note: Registered vehicles can stay parked in one spot for 28 days provided they are in good order and parked in line with NSW road rules.
  2. If the vehicle is:
  • registered and you think it may be stolen, notify the NSW Police on 131 444.
  • unregistered, or registered but cannot be legally driven due to damage, and it has been in the same place for 15 days or more, contact your local council.
