Fayette County residents can drop off old tires


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a tire collection to rid Fayette County of old tires.

Residents can drop off tires from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at Hawks Nest State Park on Route 60. Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Fayette County. Rims will be accepted. Only car and light truck tires 16 inches or less will be accepted. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.

The event is made possible in part through REAP, within the DEP’s Division of Land Restoration. REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
