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.
