City to offer training, supplies to anti-graffiti citizens

Residents fed up with graffiti can take matters into their own hands, literally.

On Oct. 3, Graffiti Watch, a citywide volunteer group, will offer training to anyone who wants to clean tagging in their neighborhoods. The program allows neighbors to quickly clean up the scrawl as soon as it appears. The City’s Department of Public Works supplies the training and the tools.

Anyone interested is urged to call Information Officer Merle Goldstone at (415) 641-2625 or at merle.goldstone@sfdpw.org

City officials recently said they are moving to less toxic materials for their own workers who remove graffiti.
