For the last number of years residents and businesses in Ontario have been charged an Environmental Handling Fee on electronic purchases. Starting January 1, 2013 we will be adjusting our billing system to reflect the new fee schedule.
What does this mean for our clients? Some of the most common changes are as follows:
Computer Monitors < 29” increase from $11.00 to $12.35
Desktop Computers decrease from $3.50 to $3.40
Portable Computers increase from $0.70 to $2.30
Desktop Printers increase from $5.40 to $11.45
