What is an EHF?
The cost of recycling electronic waste material through EPRA Manitoba is funded by an Environmental Handling Fee (EHF) collected on the purchase of new electronic equipment. The EHF reflects the actual cost to recycle materials in the product. The fee is not a tax and not a refundable deposit.
