PEOPLE are encouraged to report graffiti and fly-posters as part of Ealing Council's clampdown on envirocrimes.
Graffiti removal from all council owned, commercial and residential properties is free and this includes street furniture and utility company items, but not railway property.
The council aims to remove 90per cent of reported graffiti and fly-posters by the end of the next working day if they are told before 4pm and are asking the public to keep an eye out for envirocrimes around the borough.
Councillor Sue Emment, Cabinet Member for Environment and Street Services, said: "We want to keep the borough clean and free from vandalism and it’s with residents’ help that we can do an even better job.
"Please take a moment to call or email us and report any sightings of graffiti and fly-posting and we will get rid of it. We are keeping a sharp eye on this and will take a hard line against anyone caught vandalising the borough."
To report fly-posting or graffiti, the council will need to know the location, on which material it is posted, the colour of the graffiti or content of the fly-poster, any issues to do with access and if the graffiti is offensive.
The information can then be emailed to email@example.com or calls made to Ealing Customer Services on 020 8825 6000 from 9am–5pm on Monday–Friday. Graffiti and fly-posting is a criminal offence and witnesses should call 999.
