Public Works Services


The City of Upland has a limited supply of free sand and sandbags available to its resident to assist in protecting their properties from storm-water run-off and possible flooding.

Sandbags are available at the Upland City Yard during normal hours of operation and during Household Hazardous Waste Collection on Saturdays.

Location: 1370 N. Benson Avenue, Upland, CA 91786
Hours of Operation: Monday - Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturdays (only during Household Hazardous Waste collection) from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please note collection may be closed on Holiday weekends and in inclimate weather conditions.

Sandbag Guidelines:

  • Must be an Upland resident.
  • Shovels are available for self-service use.
  • Fill sandbags 1/2 to 2/3 full and tie at the top so the bag will lay flat when put in place. A properly filled sand bag should weigh between 35-40 lbs.
  • Bring someone to assist you. It is important to note that filling sandbags is a two-person job.

For more information, please call Public Works (909) 291-2933.
