Businesses urged to stand together against graffiti

Published on Friday 1 June, 2018


Local businesses can take a stand against graffiti with the City of Gosnells, as part of a Safe City project.

Business TAG – which stands for Together Against Graffiti – is aimed at removing graffiti as quickly as possible, to discourage more graffiti.

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said Business TAG provided a great opportunity for businesses to be proactive about graffiti removal.

“We know that areas where graffiti is removed quickly are less likely to be targeted repeatedly, but areas where graffiti is left soon accumulate more,” he said.

“By working together to target graffiti, the City and local businesses can make our community feel safer, cleaner and more inviting to community members, visitors and customers. It will also help to discourage more of this antisocial and illegal behaviour.”

As part of Business TAG, participating businesses have the opportunity to have graffiti professionally removed, thanks to sponsorship from Kleenit.

Kleenit have agreed to provide up to $1,000 of graffiti removal for large areas of graffiti, or graffiti that is up high and visible from public areas.

Businesses participating in Business TAG will receive a comprehensive information pack and a graffiti removal kit to allow for self-removal of graffiti where possible.
