A junk vehicle is defined as any vehicle, automobile, truck, van, or trailer of any kind or type that is abandoned, wrecked, dismantled, partially dismantled, inoperative, or has no current tag. The Gwinnett County Property Maintenance Ordinance does not permit junk vehicles or vehicle parts to be kept on private property or on public streets in the unincorporated areas of the County. A junk vehicle may be kept at a residence as long as it is kept in a fully enclosed building. Fully enclosed buildings do not include open carports.
Violations of the Gwinnett County Property Maintenance Ordinance are prosecuted in the Environmental Division of Recorder's Court and are subject to a penalty of up to $1000 and/or up to 60 days in jail per violation (minimum fine is $250). To report possible violations, please call the Police Services Quality of Life Unit Hotline at 770.513.5004 or click here to report online.
