About Us

As first responders we are there 24/7/365

From responding to illegal dumping along our roads to responding to accidents and repaving busy streets, the Fresno County Roads Division works hard so you, your family and employees can safely get to your destination!

Stop Illegal Dumping

Help Clean Up Our Roads

If you’ve ever driven by an old couch, broken refrigerator or a heap of trash on the side of the road, we’re the ones who clean it up.

Illegal dumping is a big problem in Fresno County: it’s not only a safety hazard, it can cause serious health and environmental problems, too. And when our team is out in the field responding to illegal dump sites, it takes away from other important work we could be doing — everything from repaving roads to ensuring traffic signs are properly working. Let’s all work together to keep our roads safe and clean! Avoid illegal dumping fines and don’t leave trash along our streets.
