Celebrating 10 Years of Raising Awareness to Keep Phoenix Graffiti-Free
February 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of Graffiti-Free Phoenix Awareness Month. While anti-graffiti education occurs year-round, the City of Phoenix highlights the issue in February to raise awareness about the negative effects of graffiti. The City is committed to creating a safe, clean, and beautiful environment for residents and encourages them to take an active role in reporting graffiti observed in their neighborhoods. “We all play a part in keeping Phoenix clean and beautiful, and this Graffiti-Free Phoenix Awareness Month, I encourage residents to remain vigilant and committed to helping us remove graffiti around the city,” said Mayor Kate Gallego. “Whether you are interested in resources to remove graffiti yourself or prefer one of our dedicated, professional teams assist you, the City of Phoenix Neighborhood Services Department is here to help.” Graffiti Busters Did you know that in most cases, the City will remove graffiti for free? In 2023, the Neighborhood Services Department’s Graffiti Busters used over 10,000 gallons of paint and cleaned up more than 51,000 graffiti sites in Phoenix. Each day, they can efficiently cover or eliminate as several as 200 graffiti sites, without charging any fees to residents or businesses. “The work that our Graffiti Busters do is incredibly important for our city. They work 7 days a week, responding to and tracking down reports of graffiti,” said Neighborhood Services Department Director, Spencer Self. “By removing it quickly and efficiently, the Graffiti Busters are helping to maintain a sense of pride and safety in our community.” See graffiti?
