Tire collection set for Lincoln County on May 10


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is hosting a tire collection to rid Lincoln County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday, May 10, at Old County Farm, located on Mud River Road in Hamlin.

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

The DEP’s tire collection events are made possible in part through its Division of Land Restoration’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP). REAP brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
