Used Oil Grants are funded under the Used Oil Collection Act of 1993. The Act establishes a used oil collection fund ($.02 per quart fee levied at the wholesale level on sales of oil in packaged form) to be used in part to establish used oil collection centers.
This is a competitive grant with an offering of $16,300 per site. The grant offering assists local governments in improving and expanding used oil infrastructure for the collection of used oil from Do-It-Yourselfers. Collection centers approved for grant funding will exceed state regulatory standards for this type facility. Detailed information regarding minimum site requirements is available in the Used Oil Collection & Recycling Grant Program Requirements.
Eligible equipment for this grant include: collection tank with spill pan, impermeable pad, used oil heater, canopy for collection tank, and absorbent material.
This grant is provided under:
