The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a local tire collection to rid Raleigh County of old tires.
The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Beckley Walmart on Eisenhower Drive. Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Raleigh County. Tires will be accepted on or off the rims. The collection is limited to car and light truck tires 16 inches or less. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.
The tire collection is made possible in part through the REAP program 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.
