Effective Ways to Deal with Graffiti

We need your help to get rid of graffiti. The faster we hear about and remove it, the less likely it is to spread or re-appear.

We remove graffiti on a “first come, first served” basis. The sooner we hear about it, the sooner we’ll get rid of it. If it contains offensive material, we’ll remove it as quickly as possible.

We proudly work with police, school groups and volunteers to keep our community vibrant and clean of graffiti.
