With the recent clean-up days across the area, residents are working together to keep the county litter-free. As an effort to help rid the county of old, unused tires, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host a tire collection on Saturday, May 7.
Tires will be collected from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the West Virginia State Farm Museum’s Maintenance Building, located just off Ohio River Road, north of Point Pleasant. The tire collection is sponsored by the DEP’s REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) program.
During the tire collection, those who have a valid West Virginia driver’s license and are a resident of Mason County, may dispose of up to 10 tires each. In order to be collected, tires must come from either cars or light trucks and must be off the rims. Tires also must be 16 inches or less.
Haulers and businesses are not eligible to participate in the tire collection.
