WELLSTON — A scrap tire collection day is slated for Tuesday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Wellston.
The event will take place at the Gallia-Jackson-Meigs-Vinton Solid Waste District Building at 1056 S. New Hampshire Ave. The event is open to the general public with a disposal cost of $1 per tire and a 10-tire maximum per load. Only cash will be accepted.
This event is being organized by the Jackson County Health Department in partnership with the GJMV Solid Waste District and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The tire charge is reportedly “conditional” requirement for receiving OEPA grant funding support; proceeds will be used for future scrap tire recycling.
Tires from businesses or tires on rims will not be accepted.
