CalRecycle Logo
CalRecycle is the state's leading authority on recycling, waste reduction and product reuse.  Officially known as the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery, CalRecycle plays an important role in the stewardship of California's vast resources and promotes innovation in technology to encourage economic and environmental sustainability.  CalRecycle provides grant funding for local agencies to encourage the use of recycled and innovative products. Placer County was awarded a $250,000 grant from CalRecycle’s Rubberized Pavement Grant Program to be applied towards our 2013 Surface Treatment Contract which utilized a “rubberized” chip seal that contained recycled tires. The rubberized chip seal was placed on over 25 miles of county roadways, and diverted the equivalent of 18,720 California waste tires from going into landfills.
