Lincoln County tire collection March 9


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

The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, at the old county farm, located on Mud River Road in Hamlin.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Lincoln County. The tires must be off the rims. 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.
