What Council is doing about it
Council has a "zero tolerance" approach to graffiti on all Council buildings. We work together with the local community and businesses to remove graffiti as quickly as possible, as this tends to reduce repeat attacks.
We minimise graffiti by:
- planting shrubbery to make targeted sites harder to access
- keeping hotspots clean and well maintained
- avoiding large surfaces that create a "canvas" for graffiti attacks
- installing sensor lights
- rapid removal.
Graffiti removal day
Graffiti removal day is held across NSW in October each year. You can volunteer or nominate a site that needs attention - see graffitiremovalday.org.au or call 1300 665 310 for details.
