Monday through Friday, the City of Tyler Solid Waste Department will be providing free hand pickup of brush that was broken due to last week's storm. All limbs and brush must be placed at the curb and be less than eight feet in length and less than six inches in diameter.
"Tyler Solid Waste typically provides free brush pick up if the debris is bundled and less than four feet in length," said Dan Brotton, Solid Waste director. "However, because of the severe storm last week, we will temporarily pick up larger debris this week at no additional cost to our customers."
If your brush does not meet the guidelines listed above, please call the Tyler Solid Waste office at (903) 531-1388.
Tyler Solid Waste did not pick up trash on Friday due to the weather; therefore picking up garbage will be our main focus on Tuesday. However, crews will be working on Wednesday and the rest of the week to pick up storm-related brush.
Any brush or limbs that are placed at the curb after Friday must be less than four feet in length and tied in bundles that do not exceed 50 pounds.
