Tires being collected in Putnam County


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is sponsoring a tire collection from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 2, at Valley Park in Hurricane, off of Route 34.


Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Putnam County. 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 being coordinated by the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) program. REAP brings together all of West Virginia’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
