After a successful pilot program in 2022, the City’s Maintenance Services Department is kicking off 2023 by announcing a full year of scheduled events to 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.
Program registration will open two weeks prior to each event. The next Disposal Day free household debris drop off at the City’s transfer station is on Saturday, Feb.11. The bi-monthly events will be held regardless of the weather conditions at the time.
Disposal Days is open to residents of incorporated Hayward only, 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!
