Removing graffiti quickly is one of the most effective ways of deterring further vandalism and keeping local streets looking their best. When graffiti disappears from view quickly, it removes the incentive for people to commit this kind of vandalism in the future.
When removing graffiti, Council may use a high pressure spray or the surface may be painted over, depending on the type of graffiti and the surface.
Council can only remove graffiti from privately owned properties with permission from the property owner.
