Graffiti

We are responsible for the removal of graffiti from property and street furniture owned by us, such as litter bins, benches, street name plates and playground equipment.

We are not responsible for the removal of graffiti from private/other buildings or highways structures such as bridges and subways (these are the responsibility of Herts Highways). It is the responsibility of the owner to remove graffiti on private property.

We are happy to consider removing graffiti that is not our responsibility, however a charge for this service will be made and the owner must sign an indemnity.
