General Information

The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery administers the Farm and Ranch (FR) Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement Grant Program, which provides up to $1 million annually in grants for the cleanup of illegal solid waste sites on farm or ranch property.

Successful Cleanup Projects

CalRecycle has funded many successful FR cleanup projects. Information on recent cleanups is now available online.

Eligibility

California cities, counties, resource conservation districts and Native American tribes are eligible. Private property owners that desire grant funding to clean up their property will need to coordinate with an eligible applicant for funding.

Sites are not eligible for funding if the site is located on property where the owner or local agency is responsible for the illegal disposal of solid waste.
