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

The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, at the Wayne County Solid Waste Authority Office and Recycling Center on Bluefield Street in Wayne.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Wayne 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 DEP REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) program brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
