Oil re­cy­cling on trial

Manawatu Guardian - - NEWS -

Coun­cil be­gins a 12-month re­cy­cling trial for Palmer­ston North res­i­dents to get rid of waste mo­tor oil. The free re­cy­cling is for non-com­mer­cial used mo­tor oil in leakproof con­tain­ers ac­cepted at the Fer­gu­son St Re­cy­cling Cen­tre. The col­lec­tion is to re­duce the po­ten­tial for used oil to get into the Manawatu¯ River. Used mo­tor oil can con­tam­i­nate ground­wa­ter, which can po­ten­tially harm fish, plants and hu­mans.
