HAYWARD, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018—The Keep Hayward Clean and Green Task Force takes its annual program of monthly community clean-up and beautification events to South Hayward on Feb. 24 with a litter-collection event starting at Tyrrell Elementary School.

The Harder-Tennyson neighborhood around Tyrrell Elementary is home to numerous schools, churches and faith-based organizations, and parks and other open spaces.

Starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, the city Maintenance Services Department will be on hand to team up with Keep Hayward Clean and Green Task Force and community members who want to get involved and volunteer.

After the work is finished by about noon, participants are encouraged to share their experience on social media, using the #HaywardBeautiful hash-tag.

Volunteers can save time by pre-registering through the City of Hayward website—but anyone and everyone is welcome to show up and sign up at the event at Tyrrell Elementary, located at 27000 Tyrrell Ave., between Shepherd Avenue and Schafer Road.
