Why am I charged an Environmental Handling Fee?

Please be advised that your Cybbay.com purchase may include an environmental handling fee (EHF) as may be required in your province. 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. EHFs are also collected on products that may contain substances that are hazardous to the environment. Cybbay charges EHFs on items that we sell, ship to, deliver to or pick up in provinces or territories where we are required to do so. The EHFs amount reflects the applicable rate. You will see the handling fee amount during the checkout process.

Cybbay is committed to keeping electronics out of landfills. Environmental Handling Fees (EHFs) cover the cost associated with the safe and responsible recycling of end-of-life electronics. EHFs are administered by provincially approved recycling programs and are not government taxes. For more information please select your province below.
