Tire collection set for Mingo County


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


The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 24, at the County Garage on First Avenue in Williamson.  


Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Mingo 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.


The 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.
