Tags and graffiti
The City of Brussels leads a policy of fighting against tags and graffiti by proposing their removal and by punishing the offenders.
The City offers a free graffiti removal service to its inhabitants. The conditions are mentioned in the:
- Regulation concerning the removal of tags and graffiti (PDF, 19.93 KB).
To report a graffiti, one can contact the Cleaning Service:
- 0800 901 07 (free of charge)
The City makes a commitment to intervene as fast as possible after this demand of removal of graffiti. However, the City needs a written authorization on behalf of the owner.
This demand (PDF, 245.73 KB) allows the Cleaning Service to intervene as quickly as possible and every time a new graffiti appears on the facade of this owner. The authorization is valid for 5 years. Pictures of the graffiti are preferably added to the application.
