Graffiti on Public Property

To report graffiti on public property in the city of Seattle for removal, use the Online Report Form or call the Graffiti Report Line at (206) 684-7587. Please report graffiti on city buildings, vehicles, litter cans, and recycling bins.

SPU's Graffiti Rangers and removal crews from other departments—such as Transportation and Parks—remove graffiti from City property. Consistent with the Graffiti Nuisance Ordinance, the city strives to meet the 10-day timetable for removing graffiti from its property.

Hate Graffiti Gets High Priority Treatment

The City takes hate, sexist, racist graffiti seriously. Our goal is to respond to such graffiti on public property as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.
