Local residents (Graffiti Volunteers) giving up their free time, painting over graffiti tags across Thirroul buildings, local parks and beach public amenties.
Goal: To eliminate graffiti tags from the Thirroul local area. It is considered by many residents to be “visual vandalism.”
Who: A group of local residents is working with local businesses, the RMS, Endeavour Energy, the Police and Wollongong City Council.
How: Businesses have been approached and given flyers displaying a photo of their property with and without graffiti tagging, a before and after removal shot.
Flyers and information regarding graffiti removal have been distributed throughout Thirroul.
Meetings have been held with council representatives who are very supportive of this cause.
Prompt reporting of graffiti has resulted in fast removal and a decrease in offences.
What You Can Do:
All residents are urged to report graffiti as soon as it appears. It is a CRIME!
