Photo: KAREN MANGNALL This week's Good Bloke Award goes to Paul Carmont of Mangere East. He was nominated by his children Brian, Michelle, Stuart and George. They write: Paul began dating our mum Sarah in 1976 when he was 23. She had two children then aged two years and six months. They fell in love and moved in together three months later. He immediately assumed the father role of providing and caring for us. Within three years we were blessed with two younger siblings. Dad has always worked hard to support our family. He is a very generous, helpful and selfless man who constantly puts others ahead of himself. He's always been a positive influ- ence on us, instilled the importance of family values and encourages his 11 grandchildren to be their best in everything they do no matter what the outcome. We would like to thank our dear Dad for being who he is -- the best father, grandfather and husband to our mum. We love you.'' The Good Bloke Award recog- nises the men in our community who go the extra mile to help others.

Scheme collects used engine oil Households in the Auck- land region can now dis- pose of their used engine oil for free, thanks to a new scheme launched by Auckland Council. The scheme's being piloted in Auckland for three years and poten- tially rolled out nation- wide in future. It aims to ensure most of the used engine oil generated by households in the region is captured and then recycled or disposed of. Environment Minister Nick Smith says the scheme is being estab- lished with support from the government's Waste Minimisation Fund. Auckland Council manager infrastructure and environmental ser- vices John Dragicevich says residents can drop off their used engine oil to Repco stores through- out the region or to Total Lubricants' office in East Tamaki. It will be col- lected and either safely disposed of or recycled. The used engine oil must be in a sealed leak- proof container -- prefer- ably a No2 recyclable container such as those newoilissoldin--and placed inside the drop-off bins provided at the stores. Auckland house- holders produce an estimated 656,000 litres of used oil annually but only a third of that is believed to be disposed of safely, Mr Dragicevich says. That means the rest has the potential to end up harming the environment. Given one litre of used engine oil can con- taminate one million litres of water and coun- cil surveys indicated the majority of households did not have access to safe convenient disposal services the council decided it was important to initiate something.'' Auckland Council environment and sus- tainability committee chairman Wayne Walker says systems already existed for collection of used oil from high- volume generators such as motor mechanics but there was no oil industry-led system for the collection of used oil from low-volume gen- erators such as do-it- yourself home mech- anics.
