Introduction

Nova Scotia's Solid Waste-Resource Management Regulations (the "Regulations"), under Section 102 of the Nova Scotia Environment Act, require "brand owners" of covered electronic products to operate or participate in an approved stewardship program. Electronics companies that sell products in Nova Scotia formed Atlantic Canada Electronics Stewardship ("ACES"), a regional non-profit organization that was approved to fulfill this requirement. In August 2012, ACES began a transition to become the Maritime Provinces Branch of the Electronic Products Recycling Association ("EPRA"), a national non-profit organization. Under the EPRA Program, retailers charge consumers an Environmental Handling Fee ("EHF") to cover the costs of collection and recycling of covered goods, and management of the program. Products covered include computers, monitors, printers, televisions, scanners, telephones, fax machines, cell phones, and audio and video playback devices.
