Graffiti Wipeout Services
Keep Akron Beautiful operates the Graffiti Wipeout System, a graffiti removal service for public property within the City of Akron. With one agency heading the program, residents, Akron Police and all city departments can quickly relay incoming graffiti reports to Keep Akron Beautiful.
Our agency was chosen to run the graffiti eradication system because of our ability to dedicate time toward its immediate removal within 24-48 hours, the key to successful graffiti prevention. We were also chosen because of our years of involvement with the national Graffiti Hurts® program provided by Keep America Beautiful, Inc., which supplies educational and programming tools to communities, schools, law enforcement and the media to reduce the incidence and severity of graffiti and tagging. Graffiti removal also coincides with our mission to improve Akron’s quality of life through beautification and responsible environmental management.
KAB removes graffiti on public property. The requests for removal service can be made by calling 3-1-1 or 330-375-2311. Keep Akron Beautiful will also remove graffiti from private property at a cost of $50 (sometimes more for larger jobs).
Anyone who spots graffiti on public property within Akron are encouraged to report it immediately so it can be eradicated immediately, which lessens the likelihood of it returning.
