Cleanup will help rid homes of old chemicals

For those who have unwanted, out of date or leftover household chemicals lying about the home, Young Shire Council is offering local residents another opportunity to dispose of them safely.
Nanjing Night Net

They’re working in partnership with the NSW Environmental Protection Agency to host this year’s free household chemical cleanout at the Victoria Street Landfill on Saturday, August 29 from 8am to 2.30pm.

“The cleanout is a free service to our community so that we can safely dispose of a range of common household chemicals which could cause harm to human health and the environment if disposed of in the regular garbage or tipped down drains,” council’s planning and environment director Craig Filmer said.

“This includes paints, household cleaners, pesticides, poisons, pool chemicals and other households wastes such as car batteries and fluorescent globes and tubes.”

Mr Filmer said people can drop off any of the following:

* Paint, strippers and varnishes.

* Pesticides, herbicides and poisons.

* Solvents and household cleaners.

* Motor oils, fuels and fluids.

* Batteries.

* Gas bottles.

* Pool and hobby chemicals.

* Fluorescent tubes.

Household quantities up to a maximum of 20 litres or 20 kilograms of a singular item will be accepted.

Mr Filmer reminds people to make sure they transport their chemicals carefully and never mix chemicals.

He said wherever possible keep chemicals in their original container, clearly labeled and well sealed and if people don’t know the contents, label it as ‘unknown’.

It is also recommended people wrap old or damaged containers in plastic bags to prevent leakages; transport them in plastic crates, buckets or trays; and don’t have them sitting near passengers.

Council to decide need for by-election

Young Town HallYoung Shire Council will next week have the sombre duty of considering what action needs to be taken to fill the vacancy created as a result of the death of Councillor John B McGregor.
Nanjing Night Net

General manager Peter Vlatko told The Witness that normally a by-election is held to fill a casual vacancy.

But, he explained, under Section 294 of the Local Government Act the need for a by-election can be dispensed with if the casual vacancy is created within 18 months before the date specified for the next ordinary election of the councillors for the area.

He confirmed he would be putting a recommendation the council wait until the next local government election to fill the position, partly out of respect for the late Cr McGregor.

Mr Vlatko said estimates put the cost of the next Local Government Election, set down for October 2016, at around $90,000.

“Given the recommended potential cost and the loss of Cr McGregor, I hope council will support not having a by-election,” he said.

Mr Vlatko said other considerations would be the recommendation from the minister around the Fit for the Future amalgamation program which is expected next month.

“Who knows – that might force an earlier local government election,” he said.

And, he said, potential candidates might not be in a position to stand for election right now.

“It is up to council as to what they decide they want to do,” Mr Vlatko said, “they have to consider what is the right thing to do for the community.”

He said the minister for local government had final veto on the decision.

“He has choices – he might order that the position not be filled,” he said, “but the fact that the Act allows for it to happen means that the council has the opportunity to state their case.”

That recommendation will go before the council’s ordinary monthly meeting next Wednesday evening.

First you apologise, then you penalise

Members of the audience listen to then prime minister Julia Gillard deliver the apology at the National Apology for Forced Adoption in the Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra in 2013. IN1984 the Adoption Act enshrined the rights of adopted children and natural parents to information about and contact with each other.Adults over 18 were finally able to apply for their original birth certificate and records.
Nanjing Night Net

If a natural parent did not want contact this was recorded in the Adoption Information Register and conveyed to their child upon application. However for adoptions before 1984, the Act did not treat natural parents equally – they could only access non-identifying information like the gender of their child.

In 2012 the Victorian Parliament apologised for the wrongful past policies and practices and “acknowledged that many thousands of Victorian babies were taken from their mothers, without informed consent, and that this loss caused immense grief “.

The apology brought validation, healing and hope for many. They felt heard and believed. The government also pledged to finally allow natural parents identifying information about their child.Hope was short-lived – the new law had a provision for ‘no contact’ statements to be lodged, which, if breached, attracted penalty fines of up to $9100. Some adoption records are known to contain misinformation about natural parents and their circumstances so decisions about contact are being made based on untruths. Yet if a mother or father writes a letter to set the record straight when a no contact statement is in place, it is a crime.

The opportunity for mothers and fathers – many of whom were victims of illegal practices when their babies were removed – to receive identifying information about their child is long overdue, and something many have not lived to see. The assumption that people now in their 60s, 70s and 80s will behave like criminals adds insult to injury. Unfortunately even the possibility of having a contact statement being placed against them is enough to deter some who are scared of the ramifications.

Most adoptees affected are in their 30s, 40s and 50s – not young children. They do not need special protective laws. This legislation perpetuates the myths that justified the immoral removal of infants – that natural parents are bad and their children need to be protected from them. Equal rights should apply to all parties to adoptions. The wishes of an adopted person can be adequately managed in the same way the wishes of natural parents have been for the last 30 years.

The pledges made at the bipartisan apology should be upheld wholeheartedly without barriers. The last thing individuals affected need is to be treated like children (adoptees) or like probable criminals (natural parents). We hope Victorian parliamentarians will seek to end this discrimination and support the repeal of contact statements in the Legislative Council this week.
