Strong Working Relationships, Engaging Solutions

Managing Programs and Obligations

EPRA Ontario (EPRAON) is a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) for collection of electronics within the province of Ontario.

EPRAON is responsible for the safe and secure collection and recycling of electronics on behalf of the Stewards we represent in nine provinces. Businesses selling regulated electronic products in Ontario (and/or the nine provinces in which EPRA operates) can meet their compliance obligation by participating in the EPRA program – the largest network of approved qualified processors and drop-off locations in Canada.

Types of Stewards

At EPRA, we pride ourselves in the strong working relationship we have with our Stewards, supporting and engaging in solutions with them.

Manufacturers, retailers, distributors and other suppliers of regulated electronics products make up our Stewards community. All across Canada and its territories, where Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is required in an active and approved Product Stewardship Plan, we support our Stewards.
