‘Green Fees’ in Quebec starting Oct.1: Comment

Jon’s article was discussing new fees introduced in Quebec for disposing of electronics, my comment is below.

We do have similar fees to this in BC already, while they seem less extreme than the ones in Quebec they are likely not a whole lot more effective. When I worked in electronics retail I found that most every customer was annoyed by these fees as they are paying a fee predicated on the fact that they are not going to dispose of the electronics properly. For me, I can see where the fees originate but since it is rare that Encorp can actually recycle all of the parts of the product it seems a somewhat unnecessary charge.

Here are the details of the fees in BC: http://www.return-it.ca/electronics/products/
