IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE:
In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, EPRA staff are now working remotely
to keep them safe and to support social distancing measures as recommended to
slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Steward and Logistics systems and call centre support continue uninterrupted
and all key transactional abilities remain in place.
Please be aware that external organizations, including collection sites, may have
modified their service or hours of operation. We recommend you call the drop
off location directly prior to recycling end of life electronics.
Committing to our planet’s future means properly recycling our electronics of the past.
What is a steward?
All manufacturers, retailers, distributors and other suppliers of regulated electronic products in, or into, any one of the provinces in Canada with provincial extended producer responsibility regulations are required to be active in an approved product stewardship plan. Provinces with electronic products stewardship regulations currently include: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories and Yukon.
Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) is a not-for-profit organization managing government-approved programs that are established by manufacturers, retailers and other stakeholders to collect and responsibly recycle end-of-life electronics. EPRA is fulfilling this role on behalf of obligated stewards in eight provinces. Businesses selling regulated electronic products in these provinces can meet their compliance obligation by participating in the EPRA Program.
