Just like the garbage collection, the city's graffiti removal program is now operating on a grid.

That's made the graffiti blaster program more effective, according to the City of Chicago.

Crews have removed more than 64,000 instances of graffiti on public and private properties in the last six months. That's a 16-percent increase, officials say.
