Anyone who sells, distributes, manufactures, supplies or imports designated electronic products in, or into, any province with provincial extended producer responsibility regulations for electronics is a steward and therefore is required to be active in an approved product stewardship plan. Stewards are obligated to register, file monthly reports and pay applicable fees on the designated electronic products they sell, distribute, manufacture or import into the province. Businesses (stewards) selling regulated electronic products in any of the following provinces – British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador – can meet their obligations by joining the EPRA Program in their province. To learn more about becoming a steward, see EPRA’s National Stewards Agreement and the EHF Reporting and Remittance Rules or call 1-888-567-4535. In Quebec, businesses must also fill out the Enterprise Information Form to demonstrate to RECYC-QUÉBEC their intention to become an EPRA-Québec steward.

Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) manages government-approved programs in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador that are established by manufacturers, retailers and other stakeholders to collect and responsibly recycle electronic waste.
The programs are funded through an Environmental Handling Fee (EHF) that is charged on the sale and distribution of regulated products in or into these provinces, and remitted to EPRA.
Businesses selling regulated electronic products in any of these provinces can meet their obligations by joining the EPRA Program in their province. Online Registration is available.
“What is the EHF?” – a training video
This video has been developed by EPRA to explain the Environmental Handling Fee (the EHF or also called an Eco Fee); what it is and what it covers. It has been created for you to use with employees, or to show anyone who is wondering “What’s this about the EHF on electronics?”
It is a brief video that will explain in just a few minutes the information needed to answer questions about the EHF, and why responsible e-recycling as a whole is so important.
