CalRecycle: Tire-Derived Aggregate Grant Program (FY 2018-19) Deadline: August 1, 2018; November 1, 2018; January 31, 2019 Amount: Up to $350,000 Match: Not stated Eligibility: Cities, Counties, special districts, JPA, nonprofit, public school districts, California UC and state colleges and community colleges
The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers a program to provide opportunities to divert waste tires from landfill disposal, prevent illegal tire dumping, and promote markets for recycled-content tire products. The Tire-Derived Aggregate (TDA) Grant Program (Program) provides assistance to civil engineers in solving a variety of engineering challenges. TDA, which is produced from shredded tires, is lightweight, free-draining, and a less expensive alternative to conventional lightweight aggregates.
Projects fall into one of four categories:
Category 1: Lightweight fill (slope stabilization, embankment fill, landslide repair, and retaining walls).
Category 2: Vibration mitigation (under rail lines).
Category 3: Low impact development/storm water management.
Category 4: Landfill application (aggregate replacement projects such as leachate and gas collection systems, drainage layers, leachate injection).
Projects that are currently underway or that have been completed at the same location within the same facility within three years of application are not eligible. Landfill application projects do not include use of shredded waste tires as alternative daily cover or alternative intermediate cover. Additionally, these landfill application project(s) are not eligible for consideration as a Very Large Project (see below for definition) and are limited to a maximum of $350,000 even if the project exceeds 4,000 tons.
