Request removal of graffiti

We can deal with instances of graffiti if they are on council owned and managed property (e.g. street name signs, litter bins, council operated car parks, council buildings).

If it is on private residential or commercial property, we will contact the owners to assist them in arranging for the removal, cleaning can be undertaken by the council for a charge.

You can report it to us using our online form, providing the specific location and type of graffiti e.g. tag, words or image:

You can also contact our waste service contractor directly to request the removal of graffiti on 01462 474000 (for council-owned/managed properties only).
