The program is funded entirely by the Environmental Handling Fees remitted by ReGeneration’s industry members. The Environmental Handling Fees paid by members are based on their unit sales in the provinces where ReGeneration has programs and may be shown separately or may be included in the product price.
The Environmental Handling Fee is taxable, as it is considered to be a part of the price of regulated products. While the taxes are remitted to the government, no part of the fee itself is remitted to the government.
