Abandoned vehicles

If you think a vehicle is abandoned, you can report it to Council for investigation. Before you report it, you may wish to check online if it is still registered via Service NSW using the NSW plate number of the vehicle.

Report an abandoned vehicle by using Snap Send Solve or by calling Council on 9083 8000 or by emailing info@waverley.nsw.gov.au.

Please supply the following information where possible:

  1. The location of the vehicle
  2. Registration number of the vehicle
  3. Whether the car is still registered (check via Service NSW)
  4. Colour of the vehicle
  5. Make/model of the vehicle

Council has made a number of changes to our processes and can quickly impound vehicles that are parked dangerously or otherwise pose a safety risk to motorists and pedestrians. In most normal circumstances, abandoned vehicles are removed within 3 weeks.

Council’s Parking Officers investigate abandoned vehicles and the investigation is carried out in accordance with the Impounding Act 1993. Council may not proceed with an investigation if the vehicle is registered, in good condition, legally parked, not causing an obstruction or danger to the public, or is considered to not be abandoned.

Council can tow away and dispose of your unwanted vehicle for a fee of $131 Please complete our Vehicle Disposal Application and submit it along with the required documents to info@waverley.nsw.gov.au or in person at our Customer Service Centre located at 55 Spring Street, Bondi Junction NSW 2022.
