Have you guys ever heard of this? I bought a few things the other day (TV, DVD, stereo system) and was charged a "Recycling Fee"!!
I looked it up and here's what I found:
What does the eco fee cover?
Household hazardous waste materials require special handling at the
What does that mean exactly? What about those people who take the electronic device and go to other parts of the world or gift them to people outside of Ontario? Then Ontario isn't responsible for their disposal, but we still have to pay fees for it!?
Does it not make more sense to charge a fee to dispose of the stuff when we're disposing them instead of when we buy them?
What about all other recyclable materials? Paper, plastic, etc. ...
IMO if Ontario keeps up with these fees they're going to be hurting themselves, because then people like me will wait until we make our next drive to Montreal and pick up stuff from there.How does this fee make any sense!? Can someone please explain this to me?
