Motorcycle surrender launched this week
Humberside Police are offering an opportunity to help rid our streets of unwanted motorbikes.
North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) has teamed up with Humberside Police to offer a new motorcycle surrender scheme.
The new scheme is part of their plans to “reduce the number of nuisance motorbikes on the streets and open spaces.”
“Local residents have told us during our Humber Talking surveys that nuisance motorbikes are one of the most common concerns they have about living in our neighbourhoods”.
“Those involved in this activity are often involved in other criminal activities and anti-social behavior”.
Many reports are filed each week from residents who are concerned for safety, noise complaints and reporting damage to the community due to illegal bikes and mopeds.
Six weeks ago the Willows Estate greens were vandalized by a number of bikes destroying the green grass spaces.
The local Neighbouring Policing Teams are offering free collection and disposal for one week starting Monday 11 January as part of the Operation Yellowfin campaign.
All conditions of mopeds, motorcycles and quad bikes are accepted and can be collected. Ring 101 quoting the log 51 of 7 January 2021.
An appointment will be made for a local officer to visit in a safe and socially distanced way to arrange the collection of the vehicles.
