Wirt County tire collection set for April 5


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is hosting a tire collection to rid Wirt County of old tires. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday, April 5, at the Wirt Recycling Center in Elizabeth.

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

The DEP’s tire collection events are made possible in part through its Division of Land Restoration’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP). REAP brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
