Graffiti is the act of marking or defacing property without permission. Its prevention and removal is very costly.
The best thing you can do to help reduce graffiti and vandalism in our community is report it when you see it.
It is important to report graffiti as quickly as possible, as it's easier to remove it in the first 24 hours from when it occurs. Removing graffiti in the first 24 hours also minimises the chance of it reappearing.
You can report graffiti on any property by contacting the NSW Graffiti Hotline on 1800 707 125. This is a free call, with the hotline operating from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
