Tire collection scheduled for Calhoun County on May 31


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program has organized a tire collection to rid Calhoun County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 31, at the Cabot Station Recycling Center, located on Route 5 near Grantsville.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Calhoun County. The tires may be on or off the rim. Only car and light truck tires 16 inches or less will be accepted. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.

The tire collection is made possible in part through the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP). REAP brings together all of West Virginia’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
