Tire collection set for Grafton


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a tire collection in Taylor County to rid the county of old tires.

The collection is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, at the Division of Highways Garage in Grafton. Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Taylor 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 event is made possible in part through REAP, 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.
