It seems this is getting bigger and bigger. Is there a way I can truncate or clean this since this is used only for caching/metadata?

Are you backing up transaction logs for that database?
Anyway, if it's only for Reporting Server why you don't put the database in Simple Recovery Model? Like: ALTER DATABASE YourDatabaseNameHere SET RECOVERY SIMPLE
