Tucson Clean & Beautiful recognizes that graffiti has an overwhelmingly negative impact on the environment and neighborhood quality of life and highly encourages proactive graffiti prevention, monitoring and reporting of graffiti sites for abatement or inspection. Property owners can also make their property a less attractive target by regularly covering up or cleaning graffiti as soon as it occurs, planting cacti, vines, or otherwise breaking up large expanses of walls, and blocking easy access to properties.
Some TCB Adopt-a-Park & Public Areas volunteer groups remove graffiti at their adopted sites, however volunteer projects focusing only on graffiti are not coordinated through TCB. Please contact one of the following entities to report graffiti and find additional resources relating to graffiti abatement:
Graffiti Protective Coatings and the City of Tucson have created a free application for reporting graffiti. To download the app, search for MyTucson on the iPhone App Store and Android Market. This program assists with removal of graffiti from many publicly-visible areas including buildings (residences and businesses) and public thoroughfares within City of Tucson limits. The program is not able to remove graffiti from certain surfaces including waste containers and Sun Tran bus shelters and does not operate at certain locations such as alleys that are not directly visible from a street. Neighborhood “sweeps” without specific addresses and locations are not possible. Removing stickers on poles is also not within the scope of this program.
