“We especially want to invite people who are new to recycling to take that first step and come out,” said Keep Tyler Beautiful Board Chair Cheryl Roy.  “They will see that it is fun and not that hard to do.”
Tyler residents will also be able to sign up for the City’s Curbside Recycling Program and Interstate Battery will have a collection station for all types of batteries.
