Bulky items that will be picked up at NO CHARGE include furniture, mattresses, appliances, electronics, carpet, fence material, up to four noncommercial vehicle tires, car batteries and other large items that would normally require a special fee. No liquid waste or brush will be picked up. Paint must be dried out with oil dry or kitty litter.

Free bulky item collection dates are dependent upon your location in the City. If your garbage is normally collected on Monday and Thursday, please place your bulky items on the curb Monday, Sept. 28 and leave them there until they are picked up. If your garbage is normally collected Tuesday and Friday, please place your bulky items on the curb Monday, Oct. 5 and leave them there until they are picked up.

There is no need to call the Solid Waste Office when you set out your bulky garbage. Items may be collected on a different day from your regular collection.

Bulky items will also be accepted from 7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 3 and Oct. 10 at the City of Tyler employee parking lot in the 300 block of North Bois D'Arc Avenue in downtown Tyler.

Residents are encouraged to contact the Habitat for Humanity ReStore or Goodwill Industries before disposing of unwanted items that are in good condition. Televisions, computers and other electronics can be recycled at any Tyler Goodwill drop off or at the Tyler Recycling Collection Center from Wednesday through Saturday.

Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
