Tire cleanup set for Hardy County on August 27


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a local tire collection to rid Hardy County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 27, at H.L. Wilson Trucking in Moorefield.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Hardy 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.

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 West Virginia’s cleanup efforts.
