Calhoun County tire collection set for Saturday, May 30


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program and the Calhoun County Solid Waste Authority are hosting a local tire collection event to rid the county of old tires. The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, at Cabot Recycling, located on Route 5, two miles west of Grantsville.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Calhoun County. The tires may be on or off the rims. Only car, ATV and light truck tires 16 inches or less will be accepted. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.

This tire collection is made possible, in part, through the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP). REAP brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
