Graffiti Paint Bank

You can help keep Denver graffiti free by picking up materials from a paint bank and covering graffiti vandalism when you see it. If the graffiti is on private property, permission must be granted from the owner/tenant prior to removal. The quicker graffiti is removed or covered, the less likely it is to return.

A paint bank is a location where citizens can pick up paint and materials at no charge to cover graffiti in Denver. Paint is available in seven standard colors and is packaged in 1 gallon containers

Available paint colors are:  grey, white, brick red, yellow beige (pale yellow), tobacco brown (warm brown), musket brown (dark brown) and viaduct  beige (tan).

 Dumpster beige paint to cover City dumpsters is also available in quart containers.  Ask about other graffiti removal supplies used to clean items such as poles, signs and traffic control boxes.

Call 311 to order paint and to make arrangements for pick up, or visit one of the participating paint banks in your community.
