Registration open for next Hayward Disposal Days event on Saturday, Aug. 12

July 29, 2023

The City of Hayward Maintenance Services Department is hosting its next Disposal Days event Saturday, Aug. 12, providing community members an additional way to dispose of household debris safely and legally free of charge.

The 2023 Disposal Days program allows residents of the City of Hayward to bring up to five cubic yards of household items for disposal to the City transfer station six times per year on the second Saturday of the months of February, April, June, August, October and December. Five cubic yards is about the equivalent of one full bed of an average size pick-up truck.

Program registration for the Aug. 12 event is now open. The bi-monthly events will be held regardless of weather conditions at the time.

The following items are not accepted at the transfer station:

  • Hazardous materials, including paint, motor oil, solvents, cleaners, pesticides, tires and car batteries
  • Objects over 75 pounds (except furniture and appliances)
  • Medical waste
  • Construction and demolition debris
  • Rocks
  • Bricks
  • Dirt
  • Concrete

Disposal Days is open to residents of incorporated City of Hayward only, and preregistration and proof of Hayward residency is required.  Registration space is limited and typically fills up fast.  To learn more, including how to register and join the waiting list, go online here to the program page on the City of Hayward website or contact Maintenance Services at (510) 881-7745 or
