TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Tyler residents will need to get trash and recycling to the curb earlier beginning in August.

Due to the extreme heat East Texas has experienced recently, City of Tyler officials announced Tuesday that trash and recycling pickup for residential areas will begin at 6 a.m. in an effort to give crews a chance to work during cooler hours and finish routes earlier.

Solid Waste will begin collecting at 6 a.m. starting Monday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Sept. 2.

Residents are asked to place garbage and/or recycle containers at the curb by 6 a.m. on their scheduled collection day. They may also place containers out after 6 p.m. the day before their scheduled collection if preferred. The start time change will not affect the scheduled collection days.
