  • Accept the terms set out in the OPP Cycle 10 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.
