and submits a local used oil collection program to the board pursuant
to Section 48691 and files a report pursuant to Section 48674.  The

block grant to that local government with the concurrence of that
local government.

center is available for every 100,000 residents not served by
curbside used oil collection, which accepts oil from the public at no
charge, at least 20 hours each week, on four days each week, of
which three hours each week are outside the weekday hours of 8 a.m.
through 5:30 p.m.

   (b) A local used oil collection program shall include a public
education program which shall inform the public of locally available
used oil recycling opportunities.

program in conjunction with other similar programs in order to
improve used oil recycling efficiency.
   (d) (1) A local government that has implemented the used oil
collection and education elements of subdivisions (a) and (b) may
also include, in the local used oil collection program, provisions
for the mitigation and the collection of oil and oil byproducts,
including other solid waste that may be mixed with oil or oil
byproducts from storm water runoff, including devices to capture that
storm water runoff, such as the use of storm drain inlet filter
   (2) A local government shall not receive a block grant pursuant to
Section 48690 for the purposes identified pursuant to paragraph  (1)
unless the local government certifies that it has a storm water
management program that is approved by the appropriate California
regional water quality control board and that the provisions in the
local used oil collection program approved for funding under
paragraph (1) are consistent with that approved storm water
management program.
