Environmental Handling Fees

Best Buy is committed to keeping electronics out of landfills. Environmental Handling Fees (EHFs) cover the cost associated with the safe and responsible recycling of end-of-life electronics. EHFs are administered by provincially approved recycling programs and are not government taxes.

Open Box products: Qualify for an EHF because the product hasn’t entered the consumer market for use.

Refurbished products: Will not qualify for an EHF because their useful life is being expanded under the reuse concept of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).

EHFs are charged based on your shipping address. For more information, including which products EHFs are applied to, please see your province below.
