SECTION 42890-42895



42890.  "Recycled tire product" means a product with not less than
50 percent of its total content derived from recycled used tires.



42891.  The Department of General Services shall revise its
procedures and procurement specifications for state purchases of
products that are made of, or contain components that can be derived
from the recycling of, used tires, including, but not limited to,
rubber, oil, natural gas, carbon black, asphalt rubber, floor tiles,
carpet underlays, mats, drainage pipes, garbage cans, retreaded
tires, and water hoses. For those purchases, the department shall
give preference, wherever feasible, to the suppliers of recycled tire
products. This preference shall be 5 percent of the lowest bid or
price quoted by suppliers offering similar products made from
nonrecycled components.



42892.  In bids in which the state has reserved the right to make
multiple awards, the recycled tire product preference cost shall be
applied, to the extent possible, so as to maximize the dollar
participation of recycled tire product businesses in the contract
award.



42893.  (a) The combined amount of preference granted pursuant to
this section shall not exceed one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000)
each year.
   (b) Notwithstanding Section 42892, the recycled tire product
preference shall not exceed fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) if a
preference exceeding that amount would preclude an award to a small
business that offers a similar product made of nonrecycled tire
components and is qualified in accordance with Section 14838 of the
Government Code. This provision applies regardless of whether the
small business is the lowest responsible bidder or is eligible for
the contract award on the basis of application of the 5 percent small
business preference.


42894.  To encourage the use of recycled tires, the department's
specifications shall require recycled tire product contracts to be
awarded to the bidder whose product has the greatest percentage of
recycled tire content if the fitness, quality, and price are
otherwise equal.



42895.  The department may adopt rules and regulations to carry out
this article.
