Graffiti is a crime that affects the whole community and costs residents, businesses owners, schools and community groups millions of dollars each year to remove.
Hurstville City Council commits more than $150,000 annually for the removal of graffiti from community areas. Our two specialist graffiti teams (known as the ‘Graffiti Killers’) remove graffiti tags, and maintain a register of tags, which provides a record of repeat offences. In the event that a graffitist is caught in Hurstville City, Council’s graffiti register is forwarded to the NSW Police for evidence.
Council staff also provide advice to residents and business owners on how best to tackle graffiti in our City. This includes information on paint, graffiti removal methods and deterring graffitists.
Graffiti is a crime and if you witness a graffitist in action you should immediately report the incident to NSW Police.
