Dunedin Taskforce Green volunteers removed about 300 graffiti tags from around the city over the Christmas-New Year period, team leader Rik Wilson said.
A graffiti removal team of three volunteers dealt with about 200 tags on average most weeks of the year.
"The guys do a really good job of keeping the city looking good, even when most people are taking a break."
They earned kudos over the holidays when Otago Peninsula Community Board chairman Paul Pope publicly thanked them for removing the work of taggers who defaced property in Tomahawk on Boxing Day.
