The State of California, Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), administers various grant payment programs in furtherance of the State’s effort to reduce, recycle, and reuse solid waste and hazardous materials generated in the State, thereby preserving landfill capacity, protecting public health and safety, and the environment.

The Local Government Waste Tire Amnesty Grant Program (TA6 Grant Program) provides opportunities for eligible applicants to conduct free amnesty events for the public to recycle their waste tires.
