The EHF is not a tax. Fees collected fund the electronics recycling program.
As of August 1, 2016, the Environmental Handling Fee (EHF) that is levied on the sale of new products in the designated categories has been adjusted. One-hundred percent (100%) of the program revenue will be used for the administration, collection, transportation, and responsible recycling of end-of-life electronics.
Products not regulated within the program will not have a fee levied and, consequently, will not be accepted at Return-It Electronics Collection Sites.
The following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics Collection Site. The associated Environmental Handling Fees (EHF) are charged at the time of purchase.
