To help rid the county of old tires, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection will host a collection from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, 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. Tires must be off the rims and only car and light truck tires, 16 inches or less, will be accepted. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.
The event is being sponsored by the DEP’s REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) program.
