DATE: MAY 3, 2005SUBJECT: USED OIL RECYCLING BLOCK GRANT FOR FY 2005-06
Staff Coordinator: Lauren Ramezani, Sr. Administrative AnalystRECOMMENDATION
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 approximately $11,424 in Used Oil Recycling Block Grant- Cycle 11 funds in FY 2005-06. The grant covers programs developed and implemented beginning July 1, 2005. The application and Resolution No. 2005- __ must be submitted by June 1, 2005.
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:
(1) Purchase tools and promotional material to help educate people to recycle used oil and oil filters, such as oil drip containers, funnels, rags and mats;
The City’s residential solidwaste contracts with Waste Management of Los Angeles and Universal Waste Systems, Inc. include the cost of collection and disposal of the used oil and oil filters.
If authorized, the City will receive approximately $11,424 in FY 2005-06 in Used Oil and Filter Recycling Block Grant funds. No funding will be received if the alternative is approved.
