Graffiti involves the unauthorised marking of public and/or private property. It may have a negative impact on the community, detracting from the positive appearance and appeal of neighbourhoods. It can also make an area appear and feel unsafe.
Persons who engage in graffiti 'tagging' do so in a range of public and private spaces. Their 'tags' are usually in places for long periods of time. In order to address this issue, Council's Cleaning Team can remove graffiti from public places and assist residents with the removal of graffiti from private property. Our dedicated graffiti removal team removes 600 instances of graffiti each year on parks, public spaces, and privately owned property.
For more information about Council's free graffiti removal service, contact the Coordinator Cleaning on 9707 9592.
It is important to record graffiti. You can do this by photographing the incident and reporting it to the Police. This information assists Police in identifying tags and prosecuting offenders.
