waste oil plan
By ELYSIA TILBROOK
Free disposal aired at meeting
Locals who change the oil on their
own vehicles could soon be able to
dispose of the waste oil for free.
Gore District Council has
endorsed a recommendation to
install a 1000-litre tank at the
transfer station to allow residents
to dispose of waste oil in a
container no bigger than 20 litres.
Concern was raised at the
Community Services Committee
meeting on Tuesday about endors-
ing the original recommendation,
which was for oil from a
container up to 10 litres to be
Councillor Ralph Beale said it
would be hard for people to fit 10
litres of oil into a 10-litre
container when doing an oil
change, so suggested allowing
Further debate was had over the
removal of the waste oil from the
The original point in the rec-
ommendation was to make
arrangements for the oil to be
removed free of charge, but
councillor Graham Sharp raised
debate about whether the oil
removal could be put up for
Mr Beale said tendering would be
hard, because council did not
know how much oil would be
disposed of, and suggested review-
ing the issue in 12 months.
District assets general manager
Paul Withers said it would be
good to float the idea of free
removal in the public domain
until the next council meeting in
three weeks, to see how much
interest was generated.
Councillors agreed and the rec-
ommendation will go to the next
council meeting to be approved by
the full council.
What you said: We asked people
on Facebook if they thought it was
a good idea. Carla Baldwin:
Absolutely! Stops people tipping it
down drains and into waterways
or even going into landfill.

Library becomes a world of toys
Looking for an inexpensive way
to spoil your child with toys?
The Gore Toy Library has
hundreds of toys available for
children, from education toys,
dress-up clothes and puzzles.
''Children can learn through
play,'' co-ordinator Cathy Borth-
Locals can borrow any of the toys
at the library by getting a
membership, which costs a lot
less than buying the toys outright.
''We have a lot more new toys that
are good quality, we buy all the
best brands,'' Mrs Borthwick said.
''A lot of the toys we get are ones
people can't afford to buy.''
The toys could also come in handy
for celebrations, such as chil-
dren's birthday parties.
Children from newborn up to 10
years old are catered for, with
most of the toys categorised by
Funding for the library is raised
through memberships, as well as
major fundraising, including the
baby photo competition, which
started at the weekend, and a
casino night in November.
The library has been operating in
Gore since 1989 and has been at its
current location on Mersey St for
Mrs Borthwick said the com-
mittee were considering moving
to another location that is more
suitable to fit the growing number
