Fees & who pays for it
Our program is funded by fees paid to OES by the producers that make the electronics. Funds collected are used to pay for collection, transportation, warehousing and processing of electronic waste, as well as research and education programs to encourage greater electronic equipment reuse and recycling, and prevent these items from getting to landfill. There is never any charge to you for dropping off items at an OES approved collection site or event. The environmental handling fee (EHF) you likely paid when purchasing new electronics covers the cost of recycling or refurbishing them.
