Hazardous Waste

Tyler Solid Waste will be handling HOLIDAY pick-ups a little differently.

In the past, when there was a holiday, we have shifted the days of residential garbage pick-up, causing confusion as to when the day of service would be.  Because of this confusion, drivers were driving their routes without servicing many of their customers. 

To lessen this uncertainty, the Solid Waste Department will utilize a once per week pick-up schedule during the holiday weeks for all customers. 


You should have received a HOLIDAY calendar for GARBAGE, and if you have recycling, you should have received a separate HOLIDAY calendar for RECYCLING.

You can also download our FREE APP "Tyler Talks Trash" on your smart phone.  The app will allow you to receive notification of any changes to the holiday schedules.  The holiday schedule is also posted on our web page.  You can also check the bottom of your water bill for notices of schedule changes.

The Tyler Solid Waste Department provides exceptional service that is both economically and environmentally responsible and meets the needs of our citizens.

Bagged Leaves

Whenever there is a heavy volume of bagged leaves, regular residential route drivers will pick up @ 25 bags or less on the same day that  your garbage is picked-up.  On occasion, it may be necessary to call another truck out to pick the bags up.  Regular yard waste is collected on the same day, as household garbage, as space and time allows.

Residents who have @ 25 bags or more will be picked up by an alternate truck throughout the week, it is possible that it may extend into the next week.
