Oil spills can be a problem for many people including boat owners, farmers and those working in the horticulture industry, DIY and car enthusiasts.
The Environment Agency has launched a website which gives advice on such matters as oil theft prevention, oil spills in flood risk areas and preparing to deal with a spill.
The website can be accessed at www.oilcare.org.uk.
This website has links to legal requirements, the latest news from the Oil Care Campaign and case studies for oil storage and use. There are also links to the Oil Bank Line where people can go to search for their nearest oil recycling bank.
