IT’S TIME TO LOVE WHERE WE LIVE! ♡

On Sunday 29 October 2017 it’s time to take ownership. It’s time to be proud. It’s time to Love Where We Live by taking part in Graffiti Removal Day!

The aim of Graffiti Removal Day is to highlight the problem of graffiti across NSW and encourage people to volunteer to remove and prevent graffiti. Graffiti vandalism costs the NSW Government and residents more than $300 million every year and it has to stop.

The results speak for themselves –

  • Since its inception in 2012, the number of GRD volunteers has increased from 597 to 1503 in 2016.
  • In its first year, 100 sites were nominated. In 2016 volunteers removed graffiti from 461 nominated sites.
  • Overall, roughly 90,000sqm of graffiti has been removed by GRD volunteers since the inception of the event. That equals a community service value of about $6.7 million value in savings for private owners and the Government.
