California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) 

Used Oil Recycling Program

Opportunity Grants

The Board administers a program to provide opportunities for the recycling of used oil. As part of this program, the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) issues Local Government Opportunity Grants (OG) to help local governments establish or enhance permanent, sustainable used oil recycling programs. The CIWMB awards these grants on a competitive basis.

The Used Oil Opportunity Grant is designed to increase oil collection opportunities thereby reducing the potential for illegal disposal. All California local governments agencies, cities, counties or regional programs (consisting of several cities and/or counties) are eligible. Opportunity Grants are competitive grants that can provide additional funding to augment or expand oil collection and informational programs established by Used Oil Block Grants.
