Free Bulky Item Collection for Spring Cleanup Week

The City of Tyler Solid Waste Department and Keep Tyler Beautiful are sponsoring a FREE bulky item collection for Tyler residential solid waste customers as a part of Spring Clean-up Week 2007.

Bulky items that will be picked up at NO CHARGE include furniture, appliances, carpet, fence material, up to 4 noncommercial cehicle tires, old toys and other large items that would normally require a special fee. No liquid waste or brush. Paint must be dried out with oil dry or kitty litter.

Due to increased participation, the dates of the clean-up week will depend on where you live in the city.

If your garbage is normally collected on Monday and Thursday, please place your bulky items on the curb, Monday, February 26 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, March 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, March 3 and March 10, in the City of Tyler employee parking lot in the 300 block of North Bois D'Arc Ave. in downtown Tyler.

Residents are encouraged to contact local organizations, such as PATH, Goodwill, and The Salvation Army before disposing of unwanted items that are in good condition.

People who want to get rid of old vehicles can contact Prevent Blindness Texas at (936) 632-0897 and refer to the Wheels for Sight vehicle donation program.
