The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers a program to provide opportunities for local governments/other eligible jurisdictions to receive payments for used oil and used oil filter collection/recycling programs.

Eligible applicants are limited to local governments, which are defined in statute as “any chartered or general law city, chartered or general law county, or any city and county.” CalRecycle may make a payment to another entity that will implement the program on behalf of a local government (in lieu of making a payment to that local government) with the agreement of that local government

- $6,000,000 is available (the amount available is subject to change, based on the availability of oil funds) for fiscal year (FY) 2021–22, subject to an approved State budget and funding availability as determined by CalRecycle.
- Per Capita Funding
- Payments are calculated per capita using the Department of Finance’s population statistics.
