What is an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program?

In New Brunswick, these are voluntary programs that are led by industries, product manufacturers and brand owners who have come together to implement recycling initiatives for specific products that at the end of their usable life do not belong in landfills.

Some of the products such as electronics can be broken down into components that can be recycled and other components that require special disposal.

What happens to these products?

E-waste: E-waste is sorted and sent to an Electronic Products Recycling Association EPRA-approved recycling facility. Hazardous materials will be properly disposed of and other materials such as, metals, plastics and glass will re-enter the manufacturing stream.

Tires: Used tires are collected at over 800 local tire outlets and sent to Tire Recycling Atlantic Canada Corporation (TRACC) in Minto, NB. At this recycling facility, the rubber from the tires is re-manufactured into various product such as, safe-play playground surfaces, livestock matting, anti-fatigue matting and roof shingles.

Oil and Glycol: Proper disposal of these products prevents contamination of water, soils and reduces waste going to the landfills extending their lifespan. When recycled, these products may be used repeatedly.

Paint: The paint recycling program in New Brunswick on average recycles 240,000 litres of paint and 77 tonnes of plastic and metal containers annually. Approximately 70% of the paint collected is recycled into new paint products. A small percentage was reused through paint exchange and 9% went to energy recovery.

Batteries: Collected items are then shipped to Call2Recycle’s responsible recycling partners. The collected materials are sorted into battery types and their makeup. Usable materials such as metals are extracted and recycled into new materials and waste products are safely and properly disposed of.

Did you know?

When you pay the deposit on beverage containers a portion is used to cover the cost of running the program and a portion is deposited into New Brunswick’s Environmental Trust Fund. The Environmental Trust Fund helps fund recycling activities in the province such as Household Hazardous Waste days.

Household Hazardous Waste:

Many products we use are considered hazardous waste because they contain corrosive, toxic, flammable ingredients, or materials that react in harmful ways when combined with other materials. These products require special care when being disposed of. Once a year the Regional Service Commission holds a Household Hazardous Waste day where residents can safely and responsibly dispose of these items.

If a product label indicates that it is toxic, corrosive, flammable, indicates caution or warning messages then the products should be treated with care when in use and at time of disposal.
