University removes abandoned bicycles in August

Regularly, Utrecht University removes broken and abandoned bicycles. These cleanup actions in bicycle parking facilities are done to improve parking capacity and to improve the street view. The next cleanup action begins on 4 August.

How does it work?

  • On Sunday 4 August 2019, all bicycles parked in bicycle parking facilities which are maintained  by the UU will be labelled.
  • If you find your bicycle with a label, simply remove the label and your bike will not be removed.
  • If the bicycle still has a label by Monday 9 September 2019, the bicycle will be removed by Fietspunt BV. Locks will be cut where necessary. Damaged locks will not be reimbursed.
  • Removed bicycles will be taken to the depot of Fietspunt BV where they will be stored for four weeks, from 9 September until 4 October 2019. After that date, the bicycles will be recycled or sold.

My bicycle is gone. What should I do?

Has your bicycle been removed? If so, you have until 4 October to collect it from the depot of Fietspunt BV Fietspunt BV (Wilhelminalaan 2a, 030-280 34 00). Be sure to take a valid means of identification and the key for your bicycle lock with you. You will need to pay storage costs of €12.50.
