Used Oil Payment Program (OPP)

FY 2017-18: Notice of Funds Available

The application period for fiscal year (FY) 2017-18 is now closed.

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.


Note: “OPP” followed by a number is the cycle code for the Local Government Used Oil Payment Program.



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.


To be eligible to apply for a payment under this program, applicants must:

  • Have either one certified used oil collection center per 100,000 residents and/or a curbside collection program that includes used oil/used oil filter collection at least monthly.
  • Have a public education component [in their program] that informs the public of locally available used oil/used oil filter collection/recycling opportunities.
  • Accept the terms set out in the OPP Cycle 8 Guidelines* and be in compliance with the program provisions described in PRC section 48690 et seq., notably PRC sections 48674, 48690, and 48691. 


A maximum amount of $11 million will be available, 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.
  • Small jurisdictions will be provided a minimum award of $5,000 for cities and $10,000 for counties.
  • Jurisdictions may also apply regionally and pool their funds.
