Once a project is logged, removal time takes up to 14 days for general graffiti or for up to 48 hours for offensive or racist graffiti.

Graffiti on private property

As identified above there is no charge to owners for the removal of graffiti on private property adjoining public areas, however, legislation does not allow the Council to enter private property beyond this point.

To arrange removal of graffiti from private property, not accessible from a public area you will need a private contractor. Contractors can be found in the Yellow Pages or other search engines.

Graffiti on property belonging to a public authority

If graffiti appears on property belonging to a public authority you can call the authority and report it directly: see Public Authorities graffiti contacts. Otherwise you can ring Council, and we will pass on the information.

Report graffiti to the Police

You should report graffiti to the Police. This assists them to develop profiles on where and when it is happening. Where possible, take a photograph of the graffiti and record the time, date and location. This will assist Police in court if they apprehend the offender. You can forward photos to the Police Youth Liaison Officer, Rose Bay Police Station, 1 Wunulla Road, Point Piper 2027.

You can report the incident to the Police Assistance Line via the NSW Graffiti Information on (02) 9228 8307. Details will be taken over the phone and entered into a report on the spot. This method means that the Police will not attend the scene.

You should contact Rose Bay Station directly on 9362 6399 under the following circumstances

  • if the graffiti uses offensive or racist language, or if there is an obvious trail of the same tag along the street
  • if you see an offence happening
  • if you know or suspect someone who is doing graffiti
