All non-essential offices in the City of Tyler will be closed on Monday, June 20 for Juneteenth.
The City of Tyler will be closing the majority of their offices to allow their employees to celebrate Juneteenth. While some offices will be closing entirely, some governmental bodies will have different hours. The following offices will be closed Monday:

The only other office that will have different hours than being closed on Monday is the Tyler Public Library, who is closed on Sunday, June 19 in addition to Monday.
For those who need to deliver payment to the Tyler Water Utilities, their business office will be closed on Monday, but the kiosk at the drive-through will be open for 24/7 access for customers to pay their bills. Customers may also use their two drop boxes if their payment is not cash, located:
- In front of the Water Business Office, 511 W. Locust St.
- A drive-up box in the Brookshire's parking lot on the corner of S. Broadway Ave. and Rice Road
Residential garbage and curbside recycling pick-up will not be picked up on Monday. To accommodate this, the collection schedule will be delayed by a day. This means that routes that are typically collected on Mondays will occur on Tuesday, June 21, and those that are typically collected on Tuesdays will occur on Wednesday, June 22. Thursday, June 23, and Friday, June 24, will have regular collection schedules.
Any yard waste, including brush; tree limbs; and bags of leaves; are not allowed to be picked up during the week of the holiday. This is because more households will be picked up during collection days.
To ensure that any animals or weather do not scatter trash, the City asks that residents do not set our their garbage carts or recycling bins before 6 p.m. the night before their scheduled pickup collection day. Additionally, according to Sec. 16-4 city ordinance, any garbage carts and recycling bins must be removed by 7 a.m. the day after a resident's scheduled collection day.
For any questions regarding payments for the Tyler Water Utilities, customers may visit their website or call their office at (903) 531-1230.
