Removing graffiti from Council, private or public property

Council property

We remove graffiti from Council property within 24 hours. Urgent cases including offensive material can be removed within four hours during working hours, or after hours if required.

Council properties include:

  • Council buildings
  • public toilets 
  • parks and reserves 
  • street furnishings such as bins and seats 
  • playgrounds and equipment 
  • Council signs 
  • fire hydrants.

Private property

We help private property owners with reported graffiti by issuing:

  • up to four litres of paint to cover over graffiti on painted surfaces
  • a biodegradable graffiti removal kit for non-painted surfaces.

Public property

Graffiti on public property is taken care of by the relevant authority, such as Public Transport Victoria for graffiti on railway stations.
