Disposal Days program for getting rid of household debris returns Saturday, June 10

May 27, 2023

The City of Hayward’s Maintenance Services Department is hosting its next Disposal Days event on Saturday, June 10.  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 of the City of Hayward to bring up to five cubic yards of households 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 be of an average-size pickup truck. 

Program registration for the June 10 event is now open.  The bi-monthly events will be held regardless of weather conditions at the time. 

Disposal Days is open to residents of incorporated Hayward only, and preregistration and proof of Hayward residency is required.  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

Registration space is limited and typically fills up fast.  To learn more about Disposal days, including how to register and join the waiting list, go online here to the program page on the City of Hayward website or contact the Hayward Maintenance Services Department at  (510) 881-7745 or
