Bulky item pickup

The bulky item pickup service covers items that are just too big to fit in your household curbside collection container.

Hayward residents are eligible for removal of specific bulky items at no extra charge by Waste Management. Call (510) 537-5500 to schedule your pickup day.

Residents in single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes may schedule two pickups each calendar year. 

Multi-family properties may schedule pickups for free through their property manager. Waste Management will bring a dumpster to the property for residents to use.
