Graffiti Removal Day 2017

Graffiti vandalism costs New South Wales over $100 million per year.

The New South Wales Government is committed to reducing graffiti vandalism by encouraging local communities to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti. To support this goal the Government established a state-wide graffiti removal and prevention day known as “Graffiti Removal Day.

The aim of Graffiti Removal Day is to highlight the problem of graffiti and encourage people to volunteer their time to remove and prevent graffiti.

Graffiti Removal Day will take place on Sunday 29 October 2017.

Volunteer - Give a helping hand

Graffiti is a serious problem across New South Wales and costs our community millions of dollars each year. Governments, businesses and volunteer organisations are doing their bit, however they also need your help.

You can get involved in the fight against graffiti by;

  • Volunteering to help at a clean-up site,
  • Promoting Graffiti Removal Day, or
  • Nominating a clean-up site.

Anyone over the age of 12 with the ability to clean off graffiti can volunteer to participate in Graffiti Removal Day.
