Community Clean Up Day
Help beautify Hercules and make it look its best by participating in our City Clean Up Day. Come and drop off old yard clippings, tree limbs, small appliances, and furniture at the Hercules Corp Yard. One visit per household is allowed, ID showing you are a resident of Hercules is required. If you would like to volunteer for this event please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (510) 799-8291.
City-Wide Garage Sale
Spring Cleaning is taken to a new level with the City-Wide Garage Sale. Residents pay to have their home listed on a map that is then sold (usually for a quarter) on the day of the event. The proceeds generated from those who sign up go to the Hercules Sister City Association, who sponsors the event.
