A tire collection to help rid Calhoun County of old tires is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, at Cabot Recycling in Grantsville. The facility is located on Route 5, two miles west of Grantsville.

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting the event. Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Calhoun County. The tires must be 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.

The DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) program brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
