The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a local tire collection to rid Mason County of old tires.
The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, at the Mason County Farm Museum Maintenance Building, just off Ohio River Road, north of Point Pleasant.
Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Mason 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 event is made possible in part through the REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) program under the DEP’s Division of Land Restoration. REAP brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
