Wiping Out Graffiti in Houston

Things to Do

Fingerprinting

The decision to create graffiti,
not "art", has consequences.

 

 

 

Get educated. Learn about graffiti, how it impacts your community, who is responsible for graffiti prevention and cleaning it up.

 

Report graffiti. Call 311 or the appropriate authority if you spot graffiti or if you see someone committing the offense.

 

Organize a Paint-Out. Free paint for citizens who have been victims of illegal tagging is available through the Solid Waste Management Department’s Environmental Service Center, 11500 South Post Oak.  The repurposed paint can be picked up on Fridays, 9 a.m. – 12 noon.  For urgent graffiti abatement deadlines, call 713-551-7355 to make an appointment.  Companies and individuals are welcome to drop off paint for re-purposing, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., and the second Saturday of each month, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

 

Plan a Mural. Organize a group of community volunteers to paint a mural over walls plagued by graffiti.

 

Coordinate a Graffiti Awareness Campaign. Organize a volunteer group at your school or in your neighborhood to raise awareness about graffiti and ways to prevent it.

 

Plant Trees and other Greenery. Organize a volunteer group to plant trees, shrubs, flowers and other greenery near a graffiti-targeted wall.

 

Organize a Citizen Patrol Group. For information about how to organize a citizen patrol group, call the Houston Police Department Citizen Patrol liaison in your area, listed below:
