Abandoned Vehicle Removal

Abandoned and junk vehicles have been a major concern in Jacksonville neighborhoods for a long time, and were further identified as such in the City’s Comprehensive Plan. This free service represents the Mayor and City Council’s commitment to cleaner, safer neighborhoods.

Do you have any unwanted vehicles on your property? If so, the City of Jacksonville will pick them up for FREE.

An Abandoned Vehicle is:

  • Any vehicle that does not have current license plates.
  • Any vehicle that does not run under its own power and is in a state of disrepair.

If your vehicles meet any of these criteria, you could be in violation of City Ordinance Sec. 28-79.

Call the Jacksonville Police Department to have them removed free, no questions asked:
