It's that time of year again that the City of Tyler will help you get rid of those bigger pieces of trash around your home. Tyler's free bulky item week begins Monday, May 3 and runs through Friday, May 7. During this week, you can place items like furniture, appliances and other large items on the curb to be picked up for free. Normally, these larger items would require a fee.
