Report an abandoned vehicle

Is there an abandoned vehicle parked outside your door. Such as a car, caravan, scooter, bicycle or trailer? Report this to the municipality. A shopping cart left out on the street is also considered an abandoned vehicle.

How does it work?

For a caravan/trailer the following applies:

  • The municipality will regularly check on the caravan/trailer you have reported.
  • If it is in violation of the rules (parked too long), the municipality will affix a sticker on the caravan/trailer.
  • If the owner does not subsequently remove the caravan/trailer, the municipality will remove it.
  • This entire process can take several weeks.




Please note: Bicycles which are not visibly broken but have been left standing unused and abandoned on the street for longer than 28 days in a row are considered orphaned bikes. The municipality is allowed to clear these bikes away. In the downtown area bicycles may not be left longer than 7 days in a parking spot or bicycle rack.

Needed for the report

The municipality needs the following information from you in the report:

  • your name, address, email address and telephone number
  • description of the abandoned vehicle
