Notice of Funds Available:  Local Government Waste Tire Enforcement (TEA) Grant  (FY 2015–16)

The application period for fiscal year (FY) 2015-16 is now closed.

The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) receives an annual appropriation from the California Tire Recycling Management Fund to administer the Tire Recycling Act (Senate Bill 937, [Vuich, Statutes of 1990, Chapter 35]) and related legislation. This specific grant provides funding to city, county, and city and county agencies in California for waste tire enforcement activities.
The purpose of the Local Government Waste Tire Enforcement Grant Program (Program) is to provide funding to local governments for the enforcement of waste tire permitting, hauling, and storage laws and regulations. In general, this includes activities such as:

  • Identifying waste tire businesses.
  • Monitoring those businesses' compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
  • Taking enforcement action in cases of persistent non-compliance and when illegal waste tire activities are identified.

Eligibility

Applicants

  • City
  • County
  • City and County

Applicants must have at least 50 (for a county) or 100 (for a city) active waste tire businesses within their jurisdictions that have Tire Program Identification (TPID) numbers.

Collaborative Applications

Applicants may submit a collaborative application with authorization from other cities and/or counties participating in the collaborative program. A Participating Collaborative Jurisdiction (PCJ) voluntarily allows a Lead Collaborative Jurisdiction (LCJ) to perform waste tire enforcement activities in its jurisdiction, despite the fact that the PCJ does not fall within the LCJ's jurisdictional boundaries. If a jurisdiction submits an application as part of a collaborative program, it cannot apply individually or as part of another collaborative program.

Cities under the Jurisdiction of an Existing County Grantee

City agencies that are under the jurisdiction of an existing grantee are eligible if the applying city:

  1. Meets the eligibility requirements of this Program.

  4. Demonstrates that complementary services are needed in its jurisdiction.

Based on the information provided by the applying city, CalRecycle will determine whether the city applicant will qualify as an eligible grant recipient.

  • Inspections of waste tire businesses.
  • Field patrolling, enforcement and case development for waste tire-related activities, including investigating illegal tire disposal activities.
  • Providing education to waste tire businesses.

Eligible costs include personnel, materials, equipment, travel, per diem, and transportation costs to perform eligible activities and enforce waste tire permitting, storage and movement laws and regulations.
