One hundred and eighty nine local authorities will take the cars in an initiative that runs from January 17-28 organised by the Keep Britain Tidy campaign.
"Apart from costing taxpayers £24 million a year to move, any old motor left lying around is likely to be vandalised or torched," said Keep Britain Tidy chief executive Alan Woods.
The two-week amnesty was set-up after research showed that some councils were spending over £80,000 a year shifting abandoned motors. Some local authorities also charged up to £67 to tow away ELVs, leading owners to abandon them.
"The situation at the moment just isn't acceptable," continued Woods. "Over half a million people complained about dumped cars in 2003 and the number of vehicle fires has risen by 48% in the last six years. Frankly, we need to get them shifted - and shifted quick."
To make the public aware of the temporarily free service, Keep Britain Tidy has also launched a poster.
