Operation: Graffiti STOP

Together with the State Government, council has been working with businesses in the region to wipe out graffiti.

If your business is affected by graffiti:

1 > Report it

Contact the Graffiti STOP hotline on 1300 GRAFFITI (1300 472 334) or log it online at www.graffitistop.com.au.

2 > Remove it

Quick removal of graffiti helps prevent the occurrence of more graffiti, and other forms of vandalism. For information on how to remove different types of graffiti, visit www.graffitistop.com.au.


On council property, graffiti is removed from buildings or structures within five working days of it being reported. Offensive or high profile graffiti is removed within one working day. We spend about $100,000 annually on cleaning and removing graffiti – help us wipe it out in the Mackay region.
