Abandoned Vehicles


A voluntary and Free junk removal program.


Do you have an inoperable vehicle on your property that you've been trying to get rid of but can't because you lost the paperwork? We can help! Owners and occupants of property specifically located within the unincorporated areas of Sonoma County can now have unwanted junk vehicles towed away for free and without the usual DMV paperwork.


This is a voluntary program. Call and we will take care of all the details. In return you will be helping your community by creating a cleaner, safer and more beautiful neighborhood to live in.
