Graffiti Removal Day 2017

Local communities are being encouraged to become local heroes in the fight against graffiti by getting involved in Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday 29 October 2017.

Graffiti vandalism costs local businesses, households, NSW Government and local councils millions of dollars every year. This is money which could be invested into roads, sporting facilities, schools and hospitals.

“Graffiti Removal Day draws attention to the fight against graffiti vandalism and encourages people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti,” Graffiti Removal Day Chairman Bob Aitken said.

“Rotary clubs throughout NSW are committed to combating graffiti, which is why we are proud to be working with the NSW Government, Graffiti Removal Australia and great sponsors such as Dulux, Selleys and Smart Graffiti on this event.”
“Graffiti Removal Day is really a day where locals can come together in the fight against graffiti and make a difference to the appearance of their community. It’s time that we all love where we live.

That means actively caring for their city, their suburb or their street and also loving the positive results of Graffiti Removal Day.”

Last year across NSW more 1500 volunteers removed 20,000m2 of graffiti from 460 sites.
“We encourage everyone to become local heroes in the fight against graffiti by volunteering on Sunday 29 October,” Mr Aitken said.
 “People who volunteer to help out on the day will be supplied with free cleaning material, paint, safety equipment and training on how to safely remove graffiti.”

“You can register or suggest a clean-up site by completing a form at www.graffitiremovalday.org.au.”

“Those who cannot make on the day can support this great event by promoting it on Facebook or Twitter #GRD17 #lovewherewelive,” Mr Aitken said.
