Your Chance to Get Rid of Bulky Garbage

If you've been looking to get rid of those unwanted bulky items around your home, you have a chance this week. The City of Tyler Solid Waste Department and Keep Tyler Beautiful are sponsoring the free collection for Tyler residents March 3rd through March 7th.

Here's the list of items they're collecting: unwanted refrigerators, washers, dryers, fence material, up to four auto tires, broken furniture, old toys or other large items that would normally require a special fee.

You can place the items on your curb now until they're collected. Or, items will also be taken this

Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. to noon in the City of Tyler employee parking lot area in the 300 block of North Bois D'arc Avenue. That's across the railroad tracks from the city complex.

Items not collected during this week include paint, liquid waste and unbundled brush. Keep in mind, items may be collected on a different day from regular garbage collection
