WVDEP Collecting Old Tires This Month

The tires must be off wheel rims, and only car and light truck tires size 16 inches or smaller will be accepted. Haulers and businesses aren't allowed to participate.

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection's Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) program is hosting tire collections this month throughout West Virginia to help rid the state's landscape of the blight of old tires. The collections began July 9 in Morgantown, in Monongalia County, and will continue through July 30.

At each collection, residents may dispose of up to 10 tires per person with a valid West Virginia ID for the county where the collection is occurring. The tires must be off wheel rims, and only car and light truck tires size 16 inches or smaller will be accepted. Haulers and businesses aren't allowed to participate.

The remaining collections are scheduled for:

  • July 16 – Ritchie County, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the state Division of Highways building in Ellenboro
  • July 16 – Hampshire County, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the state DOH building in Romney
