PROCEDURE FOR BAGGED LEAVES

All residential leaves to be collected by the City shall be placed in the parkway behind the curb line at a location so that access to it is not obstructed by overhanging tree limbs, wires, or other obstacles which would interfere with mechanical collection.

Leaves should be placed in bio-degradable bags in order to help with composition.

Leaves shall NOT be placed in City-supplied containers.

Twenty-five (25) or more bags require a call from the customer for a special pickup and shall be assessed a charge in accordance with the fee schedule in this article.

CHANGES TO HOLIDAY PICK-UP SCHEDULES

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. 

DURING HOLIDAY WEEKS ONLY, ONCE PER WEEK PICK UP WILL TAKE PLACE.

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.
