§ Mr. Bob Dunn
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he intends to encourage and arrange for the collection of waste oil by local authorities.
§ Mr. Fox
Under the national anti-waste programme, local authorities are already encouraged to set up waste oil collections.
Although there is no statutory duty for them to do so, many provide collection facilities at civic amenity centres; others arrange for and publicise collection facilities at selected garages throughout their area.
