Council's graffiti removal program
Marrickville Council is currently carrying out graffiti removal within the local government area. Council is focusing on graffiti removal from parks, reserves, playgrounds and abounding premises. Additionally, graffiti is being removed from private property in certain locations, such as main road thoroughfares and shopping precincts. Offensive graffiti is also removed when discovered. In an attempt to reduce and prevent graffiti, Council is working closely with Marrickville and Newtown Local Area Police Commands to maintain areas that have been cleaned of graffiti to reduce "re-tagging".
It is important that graffiti incidents are reported to the appropriate authorities, ensuring that the removal is carried out by the asset owner in a timely manner. Please refer to the Reporting Graffiti link at the bottom of this page, which provides contact details for each type of asset.
