The Eco Fee

Answers to common questions about why we charge an eco fee.

As part of the Consumer Product Stewardship program, our industry-run program is for safe, effective collection of left over paints, solvents, flammable liquids, gas, diesel, oil and anti-freeze.

This is not a government tax, but it is subject to GST & PST at the retail level. It is disclosed on a separate line of the invoice. Eco fees have been in place since October of 1994. Although we only started about five years ago; we implemented this fee only after finding engine oils in buckets that have over-flowed with rain water. It helps us with the recycling cost and safe disposal of leftover fluids.

You can help by ensuring your empty paint can is placed the provided garbage can with its lid off. Bring all old gas, diesel, oil and anti-freeze to the office. We charge a nominal $1.00 per litre to collect and safely dispose of these hazardous fluids. Alternatively you can return it to wherever you purchased your fresh supply in their exchange program.

Help us help the earth and comply with the Department of Fisheries by ensuring that none of these fluids find their way into the ocean.
