Greenbrier County tire collection scheduled for Sept. 19


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a local tire collection to rid Greenbrier County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 19, at the National Guard Armory in Rainelle.

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

The tire collection 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.
