The City's street sweeping program removes dirt and debris from City streets to provide a healthy, safe, and attractive environment for the citizens of Rancho Cucamonga. Street Sweeping removes roadside debris that would otherwise enter the storm drain system causing both water pollution and an increased risk of flooding. The City sweeps over 26,800 curb miles per year removing over 15,210 cubic yards of debris.
Residents can help in the fight against water pollution. Please dispose of all yard waste in the green waste or other approved containers and avoid overwatering of your landscape. Overwatering washes pollutants, including fertilizers and pesticides into the streets and storm drains. The deliberate washing, sweeping or blowing of any type of debris into the street is against the law.
The City’s objective is to sweep arterials, collectors, bike lanes, and residential streets twice monthly. Sand and debris from arterials, collectors, and bike lanes are also swept after every major rain storm.
To ensure that your street is regularly swept please be sure that on street sweeping days that the street in front of your home is free of any vehicles and other obstacles. Trees that are too low or vegetation that is overgrown may also prevent a street sweeper from properly cleaning your street and should be trimmed, if privately owned.
To report street sweeping concerns call (909) 477-2730, Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., or fill out a service request online at Rancho Responds.
