Tire collection set for Mason County


POINT PLEASANT -- The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and Gov. Joe Manchin’s REAP program are hosting a local tire collection in Mason County.


The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19.  Residents may bring old tires for disposal to the Mason County Farm Museum 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 event will accept tires ONLY. All other items must be disposed of at the countywide cleanup to be held at a later date.


This event is made possible in part through Gov. Manchin's REAP -- The Next Generation initiative within the DEP’s Division of Land Restoration. REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize West Virginia’s cleanup efforts.
