What is Environmental Fee:


The Province of Ontario has passed legislation establishing a funding system for the collection and recycling of designated electronic products. As a result, dealer.samtack.com  will be collecting a Provincial Environmental Fee for certain electronic devices sold into the Province of Ontario as of April 1, 2009.

These fees are used to support provincial recycling and disposal programs, environmental handling fees are collected on products made with materials such as metal, glass, and plastic that can be recycled into other products. Environmental Fee is also collected on products that may contain substances that are hazardous to the environment. Samtack  charges Environmental Fee on items in provinces or territories where we are required to do so. The Environmental Fee  amount reflects the applicable rate.


Please note, the Environmental Fee is taxable as per the Provincial law.
