  • What does the law say about the handling of abandoned bicycles?
    Before abandoned bicycles can be cleared out, residents must be informed well in advance that bicycle clearance will take place and on which date it will be carried out. Residents must be given ample time to mark their bicycles so that it is clear who the owner is. Typically, this period is around one month. Unmarked bicycles can then be removed and stored for at least six months. During this period, any potential owner must have the opportunity to retrieve their bicycle. After six months, ownership rights transfer to the property owner, who then transfers ownership rights to Cykelåtervinning AB.
