Eco-fees are used to support provincial recycling and disposal programs to keep end-of-life products out of our landfills and waterways. These diversion programs help protect our environment and our communities.
Eco-fees cover the collection, transportation, recycling or safe disposal of hazardous and special materials, which currently have provincially run recycling programs in place.
Stewardship organizations (provincially approved recycling programs) set the fees each year to cover these recycling programs costs. The Home Depot remits all fees collected from customers to these stewardship organizations.
Yes, if you paid an Eco-fee when you purchased a product, The Home Depot will refund that fee if you decide to return your purchase.
