Graffiti is the act of marking or defacing property without permission. Its prevention and removal is very costly.
How to report graffiti
It is important to report graffiti as quickly as possible, as it's easier to remove it in the first 24 hours from when it occurs. Removing graffiti in the first 24 hours also minimises the chance of it reappearing.
You can report graffiti on any property by contacting the NSW Graffiti Hotline on 1800 707 125. This is a free call, with the hotline operating from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays. If you see graffiti on Council property, we encourage you to contact our Customer Service Centre on 02 4921 0333, so we can quickly remove it. Council properties include:
- Council buildings
- parks and playgrounds equipment and facilities
- sporting facilities.
Graffiti Hotspot program
The Graffiti Hotspot program allows Council to work with community partners that help us remove graffiti from private property, commercial premises and public utilities. For more information about the Graffiti Hotspot program, call us on 02 4921 0333.
