We are ready to join the fight against Graffiti

The NSW Government together with Rotary, Scouts and Girls Guides are joining forces to run “Graffiti Removal Day”, a campaign to remove graffiti from NSW on Sunday 18 October 2015.

 

Graffiti costs local businesses, households and NSW Government millions of dollars each year.

 

Graffiti Removal Day draws attention to the widespread problem of graffiti vandalism across New South Wales and encourages people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti. According to Graffiti Removal Day Chairman, Bob Aitken

 

“Rotary, Scouts and Girls Guides are committed to combating graffiti, which is why we are proud to be working with the NSW Government and great sponsors such as Dulux, Selleys, Brookfield GIS and Smart Graffiti on this event.”

 

“Graffiti Removal Day” is a day where individuals, schools, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and other organisations all come together to join the fight against graffiti and make a real difference to the appearance of our local community.”

Said Mr Aitken

“People who volunteer to help out on the Day will be supplied with cleaning material, paint, safety equipment and training on how to safely remove graffiti.”
