Protecting the Environment

The City of Corona is committed to improving air quality by using alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) in its fleet. AFVs significantly reduce tail pipe emissions.

City ordinance strictly prohibits the discharge of polluted runoff into storm drains. Whatever goes down the storm drain flows directly into local rivers and streams. To help remind residents of this, the city has a storm drain stencil program whereby local students work to stencil the words "ONLY RAIN IN THE DRAIN" on storm drain inlets. For information on the City's Storm Water/Clean Water Protection program, call (951) 736-2248. To report illegal dumping, or a clogged storm drain, call (951) 736-2301.

Waste Management (the City's refuse hauler) offers curbside recycling of used motor oil. Transfer the used oil into a clean milk jug container and call Waste Management at (800) 423-9986 to schedule the oil pickup. Leave the containers (up to 5 gallons) out on the curb for your next scheduled trash day. Remember: Do not mix used oil with other liquids such as gasoline or antifreeze.

Home Improvements?

As you settle into your new home, we are sure that you will have questions regarding what types of improvements you can make. The following information is designed to assist you as you plan your home improvement projects.

The City of Corona Building and Planning Departments review all applications for building permits within the City for residential, commercial and industrial construction. Residential permits consist of new homes, but also room additions, patio covers, block walls, fences, swimming pools, spas, balconies, concrete, sprinklers and miscellaneous electrical, plumbing and mechanical work.

The Building Department operates under the guidelines of the Uniform Building Code (UBC) with amendments adopted by State law and City ordinance. The purpose of the UBC is to provide minimum standards to safeguard life, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, quality of materials, use and occupancy, location and maintenance of all buildings.

Before you begin a project at your home, call the Building Department at (951) 736-2250 to determine if you need a permit. Call the Planning Department at (951) 736-2262 to determine if you have proper zoning.

Before any permit is processed, you will need to supply a copy of your plot plan. A plot plan can be drawn on 8 ½" x 11" paper. It will need to include all four property lines, including the sidewalk and street. Once you have all the property lines, draw an outline of your house as close to scale as possible. After this is complete, measure from your house to each of the four property lines and write that dimension on your plot plan.

Trash Collection Service

Welcome to the City of Corona's Solid Waste and Recycling Programs. These programs have been specifically designed for all residents city-wide. Resident participation assists the City in meeting State mandated recycling goals by reducing the amount of recycled products currently being disposed of at landfills.

Every year Corona residents generate over 72,000 tons of trash and recyclables. Due to the residential recycling efforts, nearly half of this is being recycled through the curbside recycling and green waste programs.

Waste Management, contracted hauler for refuse and recycling services, provides Corona residents with one 96-gallon cart for regular trash, one 96-gallon cart for green waste and one 96-gallon cart for commingled recyclables.

This fully automated system allows for an aesthetically pleasing appearance on city streets, while eliminating the unsightliness of trash day. All trash, green waste and recyclables will be collected once a week on the same day by different trucks.

Cart Placement

  • Carts should be placed in the street or alley with the lids closed.
  • Wheels must be against the curb.
  • Carts should be placed at least 3 feet from each other and at least seven feet away from any obstructions such as vehicles, mail boxes or fire hydrants.

Regular Trash

Regular trash must be placed into the 96-gallon black cart (or green cart with black lid depending on the availability in your neighborhood). This cart has the capacity of three regular trash cans. All trash must be in this cart. Refuse outside of the cart, will not be collected.

The maximum weight of a 96-gallon cart is 180 pounds and 100 pounds for a 64-gallon cart. To avoid a cart from being partially emptied, please do not compress the contents. This may restrict the automated collection system from completely discharging all materials.

Holiday Schedule

Waste Management observes the following holidays:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day (July 4th)
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

If your regular collection day falls on one of these holidays your trash, green waste and recycling will be delayed one day for the rest of that week only. If you have any questions about your trash service, please call Waste Management Customer Service at (800) 423-9986.
