The City of Tyler Solid Waste Department and Keep Tyler Beautiful are again offering a FREE bulky item collection.
This free service runs from Oct. 2 until Oct. 6 for residential customers.
Bulky items to be picked up at NO CHARGE include furniture, appliances, carpet, fence material, up to four non-commercial vehicle tires, old toys and other large items that would normally require a special fee. No liquid waste, limbs or brush will be picked up. Paint must be dried out with oil dry or kitty litter.
The items may be collected at a different day from when they are placed on the curb.
For those City of Tyler residential customers who cannot participate during this campaign, many bulky items will be accepted at no charge during regular business hours at the City of Tyler Recycling Center if the resident presents an original water bill not more than 45 days from the bill date along with a current ID.
