The new recycling surcharges mean there will be no tipping fees on electronics at Yukon landfills.
Buying a new set of tires or a computer will soon cost a little more in Yukon, after the government approved a raft of new recycling fees on a number of products.
The surcharges will be levied at the point of purchase, and are meant to offset the processing costs of recyclables. The new fees mean there will be no cost for Yukoners to dispose such items at the territory's landfills.
"We've heard loud and clear from Yukoners that they care about the environment, and they want to have options to safely recycle products," said Jennifer Dagg of Environment Yukon.
