Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said keeping the city clean is "everyone's responsibility."

It's why he is encouraging residents to get involved in Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday, October 27.

Community members are encouraged to register online to participate in the Fairfield event which will be held at the Dublin Street shops in Smithfield at 9.30am.

"I encourage residents to get involved in Graffiti Removal Day because if we each do a little bit we can make a big change," Mr Carbone said.

"Graffiti vandalism costs the community. This is money could be better invested into infrastructure and services.

"Council removes graffiti as soon as possible and residents can help us do that by reporting it whenever they see it."

"Every day council keeps our city clean. Graffiti Removal Day is a day where residents can also come together, play their part and make a difference."

Residents can also report graffiti by calling 9725 0222 or by using the VandalTrak app available on all iOS and Android devices.
