Expanded List of Electronic Products Will Be Accepted for Recycling in Spring 2018

Released on November 29, 2017

Recent amendments to provincial regulation will expand the list of electronic products accepted for recycling in Saskatchewan starting May 1, 2018.

In consultation with industry and other stakeholders, the Government of Saskatchewan repealed and replaced The Waste Electronics Equipment Regulations with The Electronic Equipment Stewardship Regulations, which will allow for recycling of additional end-of-life consumer electronic products, including:
  • countertop microwave ovens;
  • desktop and portable scanners;
  • floor-standing printers;
  • external storage drives and modems,
  • game consoles, including hand-held and peripherals;
  • e-book readers; and
  • portable and vehicle (after-market) GPS systems.

“We are celebrating ten years of electronics recycling in Saskatchewan,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “These changes were developed in response to consultations and our ongoing commitment to protect the environment.  I also want to congratulate the Electronic Products Recycling Association on their success and commitment to the province, which supports this growing list of environmentally responsible recycling option.”

“Electronic Products Recycling Association Saskatchewan is pleased to offer safe, secure, and convenient recycling of electronics,” EPRA Saskatchewan Director Gayleen Creelman said.  “It is our privilege to build on 10 years of successful recycling and support the expansion of regulated electronics introduced by the Ministry of Environment.”

Over the next several months, EPRA will adjust its program to include the expanded list of products eligible for recycling, collection options, drop-off locations and other program details.  The program will be comparable to programs in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba and will include environmental handling fees charged at the point of purchase for each item.

The expanded program begins on May 1, 2018.
