Graffiti Removal Day 2016

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 30 October 2016.
