Graffiti Removal Programs

The City of Long Beach has a well-earned national reputation for its innovative and effective programs for controlling the modern blight of graffiti. These include a Free Paint Program for property owners choosing to remove the graffiti themselves; a Graffiti Removal Program which utilizes a professional Paint Contractor to insure perfect paint match when necessary; the use of misdemeanor offenders performing community service by removing graffiti from major city corridors; a Graffiti Prevention Landscape Program that provides graffiti-deterrent vines and shrubs for walls and fences attractive to graffiti vandals; and a Graffiti Hotline for citizens to report “graffiti sightings” or request free paint


Graffiti Hotline

(562) 570-2773

Leave your name, address, daytime phone number, and the exact location of graffiti on your property. After we have your written consent to remove graffiti from the property, a licensed painting contractor or volunteers will remove the graffiti within about two weeks. Every effort will be made to match colors, but the cleaned, processed, or coated area may not match precisely.
