TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: MARCH 4, 2003
SUBJECT: USED OIL RECYCLING BLOCK GRANT FOR FY 2003-04
Staff Coordinator: Lauren Ramezani, Sr. Administrative Analyst
The City implemented its first curbside used oil recycling program during FY 94-95. The curbside collection of oil filters was added in April of 1999. The City receives funds through the Used Oil Recycling Block Grant, awarded annually by the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB). To date, the used oil and filter recycling program has accomplished the following tasks:
As a result of the certified used oil collection centers, the City is eligible to apply for and receive $13,039 in Used Oil Recycling Block Grant- Cycle 9 funds in FY 2003-04. The grant covers programs developed and implemented from July 1, 2003 to June 30, 2004. The application and Resolution No. 2003- __ must be submitted by May 30, 2003.
The program addresses a key problem. Some residents change their own motor oil from their cars and then they may improperly dispose of the oil in backyards, their trash, or in the storm drain system. By continuing the existing Used Oil Recycling Program, the City will continue to provide educational awareness about the City’s residential curbside used oil and oil filter recycling program and also publicize the places where "do it yourselfers" can return oil for recycling. This will reduce liability for urban stormwater runoff problems and promote a healthier environment for citizens.
The proposed scope of work includes the following tasks:
The City’s residential solidwaste contracts with Waste Management and Ivy Rubbish Disposal include the cost of collection and disposal of the used oil and oil filters.
The alternative would be to not apply for the FY 2003-04 Used Oil and Filter Recycling Block Grant.
If authorized, the City will receive approximately $13,039 in FY 2003-04 in Used Oil and Filter Recycling Block Grant funds. No funding will be received if the alternative is approved.
