Given the current situation, many recycling locations have temporarily closed and we expect more to follow. To help minimize landfill waste we encourage you to store your recycling items until the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. Please do not throw your recyclables in the trash. If you need to visit a depot, contact them directly to confirm if they’re open. Social distancing is strongly recommended, as is staying home.

This is a not-for-profit program funded entirely by Environmental Handling Fees (EHFs) applied to HHW products at the time of sale. The fees are utilized for collection, transportation, recycling and safe disposal of returned products, as well as program administration and communication. The Environmental Handling Fees may be included in the product price or displayed as a separate charge at check out. In some stores you may see words such as eco-fee, environmental handling fee, or recycling fee on your receipt to describe the fee.

The Environmental Handling Fee is taxable, as it is considered to be a part of the price of regulated products. While the taxes are remitted to the government, no part of the fee itself is remitted to the government.
