A small, but dedicated team of volunteers gathered over the weekend for Mooree Plains, New South Wales, Graffiti Removal Day, on Sunday 21 October 2018.

Moree Plains Shire Council joined forces with the State Government, Rotary Down Under and sponsors – Dulux, Selleys, Brookfield Johnson Controls and Smart Graffiti to run the campaign to highlight the problem of graffiti vandalism and encourage people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti.

Event organiser, Council’s Environment and Compliance Manager, Dane Graham said Graffiti Removal Day provided a great opportunity for individuals, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and other organisations to join the fight against graffiti and make a real difference to the appearance of their local community.

“All the volunteers were provided with training, graffiti removal equipment and protective gear, and were sent to work.

“I am very proud of those who gave up their Sunday to help fight graffiti. It’s always inspiring to see people who are prepared to walk the walk, rather than talk the talk.”
