There has been some complaints from citizens about the garbage that accumulates on the street and in yards after the garbage containers are emptied. The garbage truck driver is not required to get out of the truck at any time during collection.  Therefore, it is up to you to make sure that your garbage is secured in the containers to keep it from collecting in the streets and yards.  Here are a few helpful hints:

Make sure your container is out by 7 am on garbage collection day.  Tuesday for residential customers.  Monday, Wednesday and Friday for commercial customers
  
Bag all loose paper and trash.  Although this is not a requirement, it is a strong suggestion.  Loose paper and trash can easily blow in the wind.  “BAGGED TRASH STOPS LITTER”.  IF YOUR TRASH IS LEFT ON THE GROUND, YOU CAN BE CHARGED WITH "ILLEGAL DUMPING"

Place the container close to the street so the garbage truck can reach it.  Please leave adequate spacing between your container and fences, vehicles, mail boxes, etc.  Setting your container too close to obstacles can prevent your garbage from being emptied

Do not overstuff your container.  Trash that is jammed in the container can prevent the container from being emptied entirely.  Trash that is piled high in the container can fall off as the arms are lifting the container and will be left on the ground

Do not put wood or metal (construction debris) in the container.  These items can damage the truck and will prevent your garbage from being collected.

City of Tye Cancels "Code Red" Program
Helpful Hints For Garbage Collection
The City of Tye will no longer contract with the CODE RED Emergency Notification Program.  Taylor County now has this program in place.  Because of this, the city felt like it was an unnecessary expense to maintain this program locally.  If you have signed up for this program through the City of Tye and would like to continue receiving emergency notifications, you will need to sign up with Taylor County.  This can be done online through the Taylor County website - taylorcountytexas.org.
Code Enforcement News
Due to the recent heavy rainfall in the past few weeks, there are several properties in Tye that are in need of mowing.  Code Enforcement officers are busy compiling a list of property owners that have high grass and weeds.  Letters will be sent out soon.  If you receive a letter concerning your property, you will be given ten days to bring your property into compliance.  If you fail to do so, you can have a complaint filed against you with the court.  This could mean assessment of fines and court costs.

If you are not able to mow your property, contact City Hall.  The city has a contact list of people that will do mowing.
Road Closures
Construction work has begun on the Business 20 (South 1st) overpass in front of the Wagon Wheel. During this time, the overpass, as well as the Old Highway 84 underpass, will be closed to traffic. Citizens travelling from Tye to Abilene along Interstate 20 may use the Fulwiler Road or Hayter Road exits to detour around the construction.
Fulwiler Road and Hayter Road will lead you back to Business 20 (South 1st) Crews are in the process of replacing the bridge with construction expected to last until early 2016.
