As legislated by the Government of Ontario all retailers are now charging new environmental fees. The fee can either be hidden in the cost of the product, or charged at the register.

The sticker price of electronics as Costco are now displaying this new Eco Fee. The fees range from $0.32 for a Wireless N Router to $12.03 for a LCD monitor. The larger 42" LCD TV has an Eco Fee of $10.03. This is a bit surprising since you would think that there is more electronic waste in a TV than a monitor.

Wireless N Router - Eco Fee $0.32

HP Printer - Eco Fee $5.05

LCD Monitor - Eco Fee $12.03

42" LCD TV - Eco Fee $10.07
