Graffiti on your property
Graffiti cleanup on private property is the property owner's responsibility, and action should be taken as soon as possible. If action is not taken in a reasonable timeframe, the City can remove the graffiti and recover the costs through the property tax process.
Paint Voucher Program: Use a paint voucher to get a reduced price on paint and supplies from select retailers, to remove graffiti from your private property. Just submit your online service request for a paint voucher through By-Law Enforcement.
We've had some success minimizing graffiti by wrapping Telus, Hydro and traffic cabinet boxes in high traffic areas.
We're also developing specialized landscaping applications to prevent graffiti.
A big part of preventing graffiti is reporting it. Let us know of graffiti problem areas in Surrey at email@example.com.
