Wayne County tire collection set for March 18


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program is hosting a local tire collection to rid Wayne County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, March 18, at the Wayne County Solid Waste Authority Office and Recycling Center on Bluefield Street in Wayne.
Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Wayne County. The tires must be off the rims. Only car, ATV and light truck tires 16 inches or less will be accepted. Haulers and businesses are not allowed to participate.
This tire collection is made possible, in part, through the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP). REAP brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
