Electronics Product Stewardship Canada (EPSC) was founded in 2003. It is a not-for-profit, industry-led organization created to design, promote and implement sustainable solutions for the recycling of end-of-life electronics. Its membership is comprised of 27 leading electronics manufacturers.
EPSC has established product stewardship programs in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, PEI, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador in partnership with the Retail Council of Canada (RCC). EPSC members also sit on the industry council for the Alberta Recycling Management Authority.
EPSC members want to see Canada’s electronic waste properly managed. These industry leaders are aware of the pressures on municipalities for landfill management and the environmental necessity to recycle electronics products and reuse the valuable resources they contain. EPSC was created to work with both industry and government to develop a flexible, effective and efficient Canadian solution.
