In common with other authorities, Lewisham clears thousands of abandoned vehicles every year. It's a constant battle, now that EU legislation on recycling has had the unfortunate effect of reducing their scrap value to virtually nil.

They're pretty quick off the mark once they're told, so if you see a dead car anywhere, give Envirocall a ring on 020 8314 7171 between 7:30am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 3pm on Saturday.

An advert in Lewisham suggests that they'll take a car away for £2, which leaves little excuse for dumping.
