The City of Hayward's Maintenance Services Department is hosting its next Disposal Day's event on Saturday, April 8. These events provide community members additional opportunities to dispose of household debris safely and legally free of charge. 

The 2023 Disposal Days program allows residents 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 of household items is about the equivalent of one full bed of an average-size pickup truck.
