Graffiti vandalism costs NSW over $100 million each year. The NSW Government is committed to reducing graffiti vandalism by encouraging local communities to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti. To support this goal the NSW Government has established a state wide graffiti removal and prevention day known as “Graffiti Removal Day”.
The aim of Graffiti Removal Day is to highlight the problem of graffiti and encourage people to volunteer their time to remove and prevent graffiti. The Day will complement and not replace existing volunteer graffiti removal programs.
Graffiti Removal Day is run by Rotary with the support from a wide range of community organisations including; Scouts Australia, Girl Guides NSW & ACT, NSW Police and Australian Men’s Shed Association.
The Day is sponsored by the NSW Government, Rotary Down Under, Dulux, Selleys, Smart Graffiti and Brookfield Johnson Controls.
This year Blue Mountains has a record number of clean-up sites and our local teams need more volunteers.
To help make Graffiti Removal Day 2014 a success you can:
• Promote the Day on your websites as well as social media pages;
• Encourage your local community to volunteer their time and/or
• Join local volunteer groups from your area to remove graffiti.
All material and equipment required to participate in Graffiti Removal Day is being provided for free by Rotary Down Under, project sponsors and the NSW Government.
