Montpelier has a drop off spot for a Central Vermont tire program that helps people in two ways. The Wheels for Warmth program helps people who need tires at affordable prices and helps recycle tires while raising money to help people heat their homes throughout Central Vermont. Winter is coming which enhances the need for quality tires with good tread, and certainly the need for heating, both of which can be very expensive for those with limited incomes.
In Montpelier tires can be dropped of this Thursday and Friday, October 27 and 28, from 3 p.m. through 7 p.m. at DuBois Construction on Three Mile Bridge Road. Tires that meet the criteria will be accepted at no charge to the donor.
Tires must meet the following standards to be accepted at no charge:
• The tires must have a remaining tread of at least 2/32nds of an inch.
• No worn spots can be visible, no cord can be showing.
• There can be no cut(s), snags or cracks in the sidewalls that are longer than 1 inch and/or are deep enough to expose cords.
• No visible signs of structural damage.
• Studded tires cannot be missing studs.
• Tires cannot be repaired in anyway, no plugs.
Tires that are in good shape will be sold to those residing in Central Vermont who need tires but cannot afford to buy brand new ones. People who need these tires will pay no more than $15 per tire. Tires that don’t make the cut will cost $4 each for recycling. All of the money raised through this program, from tires that are sold and tires that are recycled, will go to the Central Vermont Community Action Council’s emergency and supplemental fuel assistance program. This program helps many in Central Vermont stay warm in our cold winter months.
If you have any tires lying around, make sure you get to the drop-off in Montpelier this Thursday and Friday. Other locations include the Stowe Transfer Station, and Casella Waste Management, in Williston.
Wheels for Warmth is in its 7th year and has raised over $100,000 over the years to help residents of Central Vermont stay warm in the winter. Click here to learn more about the program and how you can help make a difference for your neighbors.
