As of October 1, 2011, the Government of British Columbia has mandated that retailers in B.C. collect Eco Fees when selling small appliances. The fees are managed by ElectroRecycle, a non-profit program, and will cover collection, transportation and recycling of small appliances. The program is operated on a long-term cost-recovery basis and all fees collected stay within the program.
For more information, please visit the electrorecycle.ca website.
