Our contractor Citycare manages graffiti removal in public areas around Christchurch. They aim to remove graffiti within 48 hours. Our volunteers help remove graffiti from private areas. If you’d like help removing graffiti from private property, please contact us.

Citycare has a limited range of paint colours and will attempt to match these to the area as closely as possible. If you need a specific colour, you may prefer to source the paint and paint the area yourself.

When we receive a report that a non-Council property has been tagged, we contact and discuss graffiti removal options with the property owner.
