We recognize that small appliances come in all manner of shapes of sizes and that sometimes it may not be 100% clear if a product is included in the program or not. In the case of ambiguity, we urge you to do one of two things:

  1. A Decision Tree is currently being developed to assist you with product classifications.

  2. Contact us and talk it through. When in doubt (or anytime, really) do not hesitate to use this option! Email: memberservices@cesarecycling.ca | Phone: 1-877-670-2372

Excluded Products

As a general rule, products that are not electric, are built-in or wired-in to a larger structure, or are already part of another stewardship program, are excluded from our program. You will find a list of products not accepted in the program by category here.

A word about batteries…

The Regulation requires that products containing batteries are captured under a stewardship program well. Our friends at Call2Recycle manage the program that has been developed to meet the needs of obligated parties who bring batteries into BC. If a product is sold that includes batteries, you should contact the Call2Recycle program to determine if there are obligations under that program as it may depend on the brand and type of batteries.
