Please be advised that your MemoryExpress.com purchase may include an environmental surcharge as required by your provincial government. Used to support provincial recycling and disposal programs, environmental surcharges are collected on products made with materials such as metal, glass, and plastic that can be recycled into other products. Surcharges are also collected on products that may contain substances that are hazardous to the environment. MemoryExpress.com charges environmental surcharges on items that we ship to, deliver to or pick up in provinces or territories where we are required to do so. The surcharge amount reflects the applicable rate and you will see the surcharge amount during the checkout process.
If you return an item for which you were charged an environment surcharge, the amount of the surcharge will be refunded. Please refer to your packing slip or our return policy for more details on returning items.
Visit your provincial government's websites for more information on the specific environmental programs they provide.
