The Pilot Project Program requires that local jurisdiction and recycling center operators work closely together to create innovative pilot projects and provide convenient redemption opportunities for consumers, therefore, improving consumer redemption of eligible beverage containers and increasing recycling rates in jurisdictions served by pilot projects. No more than ten pilot projects may operate at any one time.; The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) offers the Beverage Container Redemption Pilot Project Grant Program (Program) pursuant to Section 14581(a)(9) of the Public Resources Code. The purpose of the grant is to issue $7,500,000 in the form of grants for up to five pilot projects proposed by cities and/or counties working in combination with private businesses to provide convenient beverage container redemption in both urban and rural areas that do not have enough recycling opportunities for consumers. An additional $2,500,000 is available to previously approved pilot projects for expansion opportunities. Any previously approved pilot projects will be able to request additional funding (up to $500,000), beyond the initial $1,000,000 already received, to be able to expand the scope or size of the project. The Program requires that local jurisdictions and recycling center operators work closely together to create innovative pilot projects and provide convenient redemption opportunities for consumers, therefore, improving consumer redemption of eligible beverage containers and increase recycling rates in jurisdictions served by pilot projects. Applicant must submit a Resolution no later than the application due date or CalRecycle will deem the application incomplete and disqualify the applicant.
