Hayward and San Leandro are sponsoring cleanup events Saturday.
Hayward is having a citywide cleanup blitz from 8 a.m. to noon. Last year, more than 300 people picked up more than 86 cubic yards of trash, enough to fill 43 pickup trucks, in a single morning.
In San Leandro, more than 300 households will take part in a citywide garage sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. A map of participating households can be downloaded at www.recyclesanleandro.org.
City residents also can recycle unwanted household items such as appliances, tires, metal, clean wood, computer equipment and mattresses from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Alameda County Industries recycling center, 610 Aladdin Ave.
For more information, call the San Leandro recycling hotline at 510-577-6026.
