Tire collection planned Saturday in Raleigh County


BECKLEY — The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s REAP program will host a tire collection in Raleigh County to rid the county of old tires Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Beckley Walmart on Eisenhower Drive.

Residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for Raleigh County. 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 REAP within the DEP’s Division of Land Restoration. REAP (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) brings together all of the state’s cleanup programs to maximize the state’s cleanup efforts.
