Our Drop Off Center

The Tyler Recycling Collection Center is a self-service drop-off center. No payments are made for materials accepted at the center, but recyclables sold by the City helps keep the center open and reduces the amount of waste taken to the landfill. You do not have to be a Tyler resident to use this dropoff center.  

The recycling center also accepts vehicles. (A title is required to show proof of ownership).
