Council is committed to creating a clean and tidy city - and we need your help. You can help us clean up dumped rubbish, litter and graffiti by reporting it as soon as you see it.
Report an issue
Dumped rubbish, litter and graffiti make an area look untidy and uncared for. Studies have shown that small crimes, such as littering, can lead to more serious crimes if left unattended.
Graffiti on private property
Maintaining your property and removing any litter and graffiti quickly sends a message that you are proud of your property and reduces any recognition time for the graffiti.
Council provides free graffiti removal kits for residents to help clean up small areas of graffiti. To obtain a kit, visit a Customer Service Centre with proof of Hume residency. Please note that kits cannot be mailed out. There are two types of kits available - for sensitive surfaces, such as painted walls and fences, and brick and masonry surfaces.
For larger areas of graffiti, Council has a graffiti removal trailer that targets hot spots such as parks, playgrounds, shop fronts, buildings, fences and laneways.
