As of April 1, 2009, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) program plan became effective under the Waste Diversion Act, 2002 (WDA), which was introduced by the Ontario Ministry of Environment. To ensure the designated electrical and electronic products are recycled properly, the WEEE program plan requires fees to be paid for the Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) supplied to Ontario. This is being regulated by Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES).
Under this regulation, Canada Computers & Electronics will be charging additional recycling fees on purchases based on the fee structure provided by OES. Click here for the fee structure. Such fees only apply to the products purchased within the province of Ontario. Since these fees are additions to the costs of products, they will be reflected on your invoice at the point of checkout. If you are registered with OES as a remitter and prefer to administer and report directly to OES for the OES recycling fee, please fill in the Interim Remitter's Agreement and fax it back to Head Office. Then in order for you to enter the agreement, you must complete the online process, as outlined on the OES' Online Reporting System by accessing here: https://mtsreport.oesdatasystem.ca/login.aspx.
