Environmental Handling Fee
The Electronics Recycling Program approved by Recycle NB ensures the responsible recycling of electronic products covered by the Designated Materials Regulation.
Brand owners chose EPRA (Electronic Products Recycling Association) to operate the recycling program in New Brunswick on their behalf.
EPRA sets the Environmental Handling Fee for each new electronic product. The fee goes to EPRA to cover the costs of the electronics recycling program in New Brunswick. Industry may absorb the fee or pass it on to the consumer by including it in the advertised price of the product.
