Who do I report it too?

My neighbors have 8-9 cars. Some broken down, some with out tags etc. They park it in their TINY yard and park the rest in the alley and on the street.

Isn't there a way I can report them? It's trashy. They are treating it as a junk yard when they have a tiny yard.

Call the police nonemergency number.

Report it to the city. I know here it is illegal to park in an alley.

Code enforcement!  They'll get a few days to clean up and then a big fat fine if they don't.

Depends on the codes for that area. They may within their rights to have a junk heap. If not report it to the city. However, keep in mind that breeds problems between neighbors and can cause worse problems. It isn't your house and it is a free country.  They may be gross but sometimes you have no choice.  If they are within their rights by city code, you can't do much, without moving. Sad but true. Good LUCK.  Hope they clean up.

Depends on the area.  We reported my MIL's neighbors for years and they did nothing.  They were actually stacking cars on top of cars at one point.  It was a residential area.

We had that problem once.  Called once a week for a month, they never came out.  Called daily for two weeks, never came out.  Called states atty.  It was cleaned up in 13 days.
