    MONTPELIER Lt. Gov. Phil Scott is asking Vermonters to spare those tires no longer in use by donating them to the ninth annual Wheels for Warmth tire recycle and resale event.

    Tires will be collected Oct. 24 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at six locations, including the Village Grocery in Waitsfield, and Oct. 24 and 25 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at DuBois Construction in Montpelier.

    The tire sale will be held Oct. 26 at DuBois Construction from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    The event, established by Scott in 2005, has three goals: raise funds for emergency fuel assistance, create a resource of inspected tires that are for sale to families in need at a reasonable price, and reduce the number of tires discarded in rivers and along roads.

    The event has raised more than $178,000 for emergency fuel assistance. It has collected nearly 10,000 safe tires and recycled 16,000 unsafe tires.
