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." The applicant's local used oil collection program must include used oil and used oil filter collection opportunities and a public education element as outlined in Public Resources Code (PRC) § 48691. PRC § 48653 provides a maximum of $11 million per fiscal year for this program. Actual budget amounts are determined annually as part of the State budget process. Payments are calculated per capita using the Department of Finance's population statistics.
