Anti-Graffiti Program

Greater Ridgewood Restoration Corporation (GRRC) is not a business but a non-profit organization that has worked since 1975 to stabilize and improve our neighborhood. Our anti-graffiti building cleaning program began on May 4, 1992, since then we have cleaned over 7,000 sites. The program is in operation from January through December.


GRRC removes graffiti from buildings with a high-pressure hot water pressure washer and caustic chemicals or by painting over non washable surfaces, such as wood or roll down gates.

 Our program is free of charge. Participants in the Anti-Graffiti program are asked to make a voluntary donation.

Insurance, maintenance, fuel (both diesel and gasoline), supplies, paint and other expenses must be covered by grants and donations. Our crew, supervised by a neighborhood crew chief works five days a week from January through December, on properties where the owner has given us written permission.

The program has a paid crew chief and cleaning assistant. Building owners are asked to sign a waiver and make a donation to help defray some of the costs.

You might be reluctant to clean your building because you feel graffiti will quickly reappear.  Notify us as soon as graffiti reappears and GRRC will remove it.
