Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California local and state governments and other public entities for projects that promote public health and safety and protect the environment. Funding is intended to provide agencies with financial assistance in carrying out projects to clean local sites from unwanted waste products.

Assembly Bill 2136 (enacted October 1993) required CalRecycle to initiate the Solid Waste Disposal and Co-disposal Site Cleanup Program (program) for cleanup of solid waste sites and solid waste at co-disposal sites where the responsible party either cannot be identified or is unwilling or unable to pay for timely remediation and where cleanup is needed to protect public health and safety and/or the environment. Under the program, local governments can finance a wide range of remediation projects.

Eligible projects include the remediation of disposal sites closed in accordance with the local laws at the time of the closure and prior to implementation of the state’s current permitting and/or closure requirements for landfills and disposal sites.

Eligible costs are limited to the following:

  • Waste removal and disposal.
  • Security measures such as fences, barriers, and warning signs and other measures to prevent recurring illegal dumping at the remediated sites. These Prevention measures and staff time are limited to no more than 25 percent of the overall grant amount. These measures can include public information materials.
  • Site grading and drainage controls to minimize erosion.
  • Slope and foundation stabilization.
  • Excavation, consolidation, and capping of waste areas.
  • Installation of landfill gas and leachate control systems.
  • Field and laboratory testing.
  • Health and safety measures required for eligible project work.

These costs may include, but are not limited to, expenditures for contractors, public agency labor, rental equipment, preparation of designs, or consultant services directly associated with an eligible cost item.
