Northwest Territories' Electronics Recycling Program launched on February 1, 2016

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) contracted Alberta Recycling to administer the revenue portion of their Electronics Recycling Program and Alberta Recycling is the main point of contact for companies (Distributors) selling in or into the NWT.

Under the Electronics Recycling Regulations any person manufacturing, selling or distributing electronics in or into the NWT is an electronics distributor (this includes retailers).

As of February 1, 2016, all distributors are required to:

  1. Be registered as a distributor;
  2. Collect environmental handling fees on designated electronics sold/distributed;
  3. Report and remit fees, where applicable; and
  4. Maintain accurate books and records.
