Love your community this graffiti removal day
Date posted: 11 October 2018
Show some love to your community by volunteering to help clean up your City on Graffiti Removal Day, Sunday 21 October.
Council’s Acting Manager Community Planning, Andrew Bryant, said Graffiti Removal Day is about taking pride in our local community, while helping to tackle the problem of graffiti vandalism.
“Council strives to make our neighbourhoods and urban centres inviting spaces for the whole community to enjoy, and no one likes to see unsightly graffiti vandalism get in the way of this,” Mr Bryant said.
“Not only is graffiti vandalism costly and time consuming to remove, it can make local residents feel unsafe in their own community.
“With Graffiti Removal Day coming up on Sunday 21 October, I would encourage everyone to get out and about, volunteer some time and help keep our public spaces looking their best.”
Council through it’s Graffiti Hotspot Program will be targeting both the Grey Street, Swansea pedestrian underpass, and infrastructure boarding the Hunter Water Canals through the central business district of Cardiff.
Last year’s event was a great success with all volunteers removing over 30,000sqm of graffiti from across NSW.
