Extension of ePilot

December 23, 2022

The Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA) has been overseeing recycling initiatives on behalf of the Government of Alberta for 30 years. We sincerely appreciate the support of our registered electronics collection sites and processors as we look for ways to explore and embrace innovative ideas and programs around the recycling industry. We are committed to working with our stakeholders to help grow and adjust our programs in areas that will have the greatest impact on our economy and the environment.

We are writing to inform registered collection sites and electronics processors that we have received a Ministerial Order from the Honourable Sonya Savage, Minister of Environment and Protected Areas, to extend the ePilot.

This extension permits the ePilot to continue operating as established, with no impacts, providing additional time for us to work with government on the feedback on our ePilot report and the associated recommendations for expansion. It will also permit time for a seamless transition between the existing program and an expansion, once we are able. Please continue to operate the ePilot program according to the existing guidelines, so that we can continue to collect valuable data and report on any other findings.

If you have any questions regarding this update, please contact our Program Administration team either by email at or by phone at 1.888.999.8762; we will be pleased to assist you.

Thank you for helping make Alberta’s electronics recycling program a success and supporting our vision of Inspiring a Future without Waste.
