CHARLESTON, WV -

The West Virginia Environmental Protection's Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) is set to start cleaning up an illegal dump site on Ventroux Road in Saint Albans on Jan. 15.

REAP Program Manager Greg Rote said the site is often used as an illegal dump and this is not the first time the DEP has had to clean the site.  Contractors will begin cleaning the site at 9 a.m. 

The DEP uses landfill fees to clean up illegal sites and to gather evidence on illegal dumping. 

REAP handles all cleanup programs for the DEP.
