a wheelie good idea

Trader and Township groups across the shire are helping keep local streets free from tagging using Council's latest initiative in graffiti cleanup, the 'Portable Graffiti Removal Kit'.

From left to right: Cr Samantha Dunn - Lyster Ward, Alan Fincher - Monbulk Police, Merryn Auldist - Graffiti Officer from the Shire and Linda Hancock - Community Safety Victoria Police checking out the contents of the graffiti wheelie bin.

The kits, which are conveniently stored in a wheelie bin, are equipped with graffiti removal chemicals, paint, brushes, bins, goggles and gloves to assist traders to safely remove tagging from small areas including windows, walls, signs and other areas.

After the success of our Graffiti Trailer, the wheelie bin kits have been developed to provide an easy way for Trader and Township groups to remove tagging as soon as it happens. Their portability makes them very easy to transport to locations where graffiti needs to be removed.

The Wheelie Bin Graffiti Removal Kits are available for local use in Belgrave, Healesville, Kilsyth, Monbulk, Montrose, Mooroolbark, Mount Evelyn , Tecoma, Wandin North and Yarra Junction.

Trader, Township and Community groups wishing to use the graffiti trailer or the new portable wheelie bin kits can contact Council's Community Links or Yarra Ranges Youth Services on 9294 6750.

Did you know that as a resident you can get a free graffiti removal kit at any of the Shire's community links?
