Bandit Signs

Bandit Signs are a Problem

  • Bandit signs are small advertisement signs that are placed in the public right-of-way.
  • These signs proliferate quickly, create litter and diminish the appearance of the community.
  • City staff work hard to remove bandit signs, but our efforts are quickly outpaced.
  • Attempting to prosecute those whose number is listed on the sign is difficult and takes up valuable staff time.
  • The City needs your help removing these signs from our community.
If you see a bandit sign in the public right-of-way, you should:
  • Pull over and exit an active lane of traffic.
  • Safely get to the location of the sign.
  • Remove it.
  • Dispose of it through residential collection or by dropping the signs off at Volunteer Services, 1616 N. Galloway, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. 
If you are not sure about a sign, report it to Environmental Code by calling 972-216-6276 or submitting a report here.
