Tire collection set for Wyoming County


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and Gov. Joe Manchin’s REAP program are hosting a local tire collection on April 17 to rid Wyoming County of old tires. The event is being held in conjunction with a metal collection sponsored by the Wyoming County Commission, Wyoming County Solid Waste Authority and the Upper Guyandotte Watershed Association.


Officials will be collecting tires and metal from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the old Department of Highways garage on Route 10 at Rock View.


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


Any scrap metal, including but not limited to appliances and cars, will be accepted. No gas tanks, wire, cable, paint cans or flammable items will be accepted.


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