Borrow a Box and Help Wipe Out Graffiti
The ‘Borrow a Box’ Scheme, run by South Bucks District Council’s Community Safety team, is giving residents the opportunity to do something about graffiti on their property by offering free removal kits.
Graffiti can take many forms including drawings, tags or messages that are painted or written on buildings, walls or street furniture. It is unsightly, illegal and often highly offensive and can attract other crimes to a particular area.
The graffiti response kits which are available from the council are safe, simple and easy to use: full instructions are provided along with appropriate protection equipment.
South Bucks District Councillor Anita Cranmer, Portfolio Holder for Community, says, “Graffiti on commercial premises or private property remains the responsibility of the owners to remove. Graffiti can spoil both public and private property and can be very costly to remove. The environmentally friendly kit can be customised to take into consideration the type of surface effected.
We want to give residents the tools to help make their local area, cleaner and greener.”
Neighbourhood Inspector, Bhupinder Rai says, “Graffiti can add to the fear of crime and can be a contributing factor in the decline of a neighbourhood or area. By working with our partners and local residents, we aim to have a clean 'graffiti free' environment”.
