Vermont's lieutenant governor wants your used tires to help heat the homes of low-income Vermonters.
Every year Phil Scott collects old tires for a project called "Wheels for Warmth." The tires can be donated at drop-off locations around the state. The tires will be inspected. If they're in good shape, they're re-sold at discounted prices Oct. 26. The rest are recycled for a $4 fee. All the proceeds are donated to fuel assistance programs.
"It recycles. It extends the life use of the tire and raises money for fuel assistance which is a necessary event here in our climate. So it's all good," said Lt. Gov. Phil Scott.
In the last eight years the program has raised $180,000 for fuel assistance and recycled close to 10,000 tires.
