Hayward has a population of 144,186 and is located in the East Bay in Alameda County. Lying squarely on the Hayward fault line, Hayward has rebuilt itself time and again, since its first major earthquake (the Hayward Earthquake) in 1868. The Meek Mansion (constructed in 1869, in adjacent Cherryland) whose basement rests upon an "unusual" bracing system consisting of thick, diagonally placed timber boards (which have supported it through decades of earthquakes), stands as a testament to the ingenuity of the founding fathers of the area. Hayward is also home to the main campus of Cal State University, East Bay, is the second most diverse city in the state by Census figures, and has been ranked nationwide as highly diverse, in combination with Oakland and Fremont. Hayward also boasts the largest recreation district in California and is home to the oldest Japanese garden in the state designed along traditional lines.
As part of a state-wide green initiative, in January 2013, Hayward, along with other members of Alameda County, came under the "no single-use" plastic bag state regulations, meaning that no such bags are provided at stores. Residents are encouraged to bring their own bags, but can purchase reusable and recycled-content bags at stores.
All residents and businesses are required to subscribe to weekly garbage service to reduce trash accumulation. Under a franchise contract with Waste Management of Alameda County, the City provides weekly collection of garbage. Residents may subscribe to one of four cart sizes: 20 - 32 - 64 - 96 gallon capacities. The monthly fee varies with the capacity of the cart. Currently plant debris has been banned from landfills in Alameda County, necessitating residents and businesses dispose of them through the appropriate organics collection.
The Davis Street Transfer Station is located at 2615 Davis Street in San Leandro and accepts self-hauled trash for disposal. The facility is open on the following days and times: Monday - Friday: 7AM - 5 PM and Saturday from 8AM - 4PM; closed on Sundays. For further information about materials accepted and rates charged, please call (510) 638-2303.
