East Texans are doing their part to help the environment on America Recycles Day. Keep Tyler Beautiful hosted their Tyler Recycle's Day at the Tyler Recycling Center.

Organizers hope to beat last year's total of six tons of recyclables. Glass, bottles, paper and batteries were just a few of the items people brought to the center.

“Recycling helps to reduce landfills and help our environment,” Keep Tyler Beautiful organizer Angela Cardoza says. “Everyone can do their part to keep Tyler clean.”

Keep Tyler Beautiful wants to remind everyone to buy recycled products.
