The CIWMB (now known as CalRecycle) provided the Waste Tire Playground Cover Grant Program to promote markets for recycled-content products derived from waste tires generated in California and decrease the adverse environmental impacts created by unlawful disposal and stockpiling of waste tires. In 2005, this program was replaced by the Tire-Derived Product (TDP) grant program.
The following, in addition to the links on the left, provide more detailed information and resources about these grants and the tire grant programs in general.
CIWMB required that a permanent sign be posted at the project site indicating the number of California waste tires diverted from the waste stream.
