Graffiti Removal Day: Let’s Love Where We Live

In NSW alone, graffiti vandalism costs the State Government and property owners more than $300 million each year – but that’s not why you should get involved.

Between 2009 and 2014 an average of 9,200 incidents of graffiti vandalism were reported throughout NSW each year – but that’s not why either.

Last year Graffiti Removal Day volunteers removed more than 20,900 square metres of graffiti from nominated sites, saving Australians more than $1.4 million in removal costs – but’s that’s still not why you should volunteer.

So, why should you volunteer for Graffiti Removal day 2017?

Because it is time to Love Where We Live.

There is an old saying that the grass is greener on the other side, but that isn’t necessarily true. The grass is greenest where it is watered, nurtured and cared for. No matter what postcode you call home, you can be proud of where you live if it is place that has been loved and taken care of.

If we love where we live by taking care of our own patch, then we love where we live because it becomes a place we’re proud to call home.

It’s time to take ownership. It’s time to be proud. It’s time to Love Where We Live.

Graffiti Removal Day will be held on Sunday, 29 October 2017. For more information on how to sign up or nominate a site go to http://graffitiremovalday.org.au
