Street sweeping services

The City of Rancho Santa Margarita is proud to partner with Sunset Property Services to provide citywide street sweeping services. Click here to view the Street Sweeping Outreach Program information page. We are reaching out to residents to provide the City's street sweeping schedule and highlight the many benefits of our street sweeping program. Street sweeping is provided not only for aesthetics and beautification; it also has a great impact on our environment.

The more obvious benefit is the collection and removal of paper, leaves, and other visible debris that collect in the gutters. This debris can block storm water facilities, causing localized flooding during heavy rains. An equally important, but less visible benefit is the removal of metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by motor vehicles. Although they are virtually invisible, these particles can be extremely harmful to fish and other wildlife if they reach our creeks, rivers, beaches and bays. Street sweeping is an effective method of removing both the large and microscopic pollutants that collect on City streets.

Unfortunately, for every vehicle parked on the street on a sweeping day, the sweepers have to maneuver the length of two cars to service the street safely, leaving over 40 feet of roadway un-swept.   Help keep our oceans, streets, and storm drains clean by keeping our services effective; please reference your street’s days of service and move parked cars between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on these days.
