New Brunswick Stewardship Program

New Brunswick has started its own stewardship program modeled after Quebec’s. Beginning January 1, all applicable products will be charged the appropriate EHC fees.

Current EHC rates in New Brunswick:
Recyclable Oil: $0.05 per liter
Oil Containers: $0.10 per liter of capacity
Antifreeze: $0.16 per liter
Antifreeze Containers: $0.10 per liter of capacity
Filters less than 8” in height: $0.50 per filter
Filters 8” and greater in height: $1.00 per filter

Non-recyclable (two-stroke) oils will only be charged the container fees. EHC container fees are only applicable to containers of 50 liters or less.
