16 September 2015 Graffiti Removal Day

The NSW Government and local Rotary clubs are joining forces - with support from Coffs Harbour City Council - to run “Graffiti Removal Day”, a campaign to remove graffiti from the Coffs Harbour area on Sunday, October 18, 2015.

 

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

 

Graffiti Removal Day aims to draw attention to the widespread problem of graffiti vandalism and encourage people to get involved in its removal and prevention.

 

“’Graffiti Removal Day’ is a date where individuals, schools, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and other organisations can all come together to join the fight against graffiti and make a real difference to the appearance of our local community,” said Councillor Mark Sultana, who has been leading the charge locally against graffiti.

 

Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, also fully supports this initiative and is encouraging everyone to get involved by volunteering to help remove graffiti on Sunday October 18.

 

Anyone who volunteers to help out on the Day will be supplied with cleaning materials, paint, safety equipment and training on how to safely remove graffiti.

 

People can volunteer by completing the form available on the Graffiti Removal Day website or by registering on the Day at one of the local sites.

 

To register as a volunteer for the day, go to www.graffitiremovalday.org.au

 

A list of local clean-up sites will be available on the official website closer to the date.
