An Environmental Handling Fee (EHF), or eco-fee, is considered the “cost of doing good”. It’s applied on the sale of all new electronic products.
From providing entertainment to simplifying and improving many tasks, electronics have become central to both the residence and workplace. However, electronics also create an e-waste problem.

Many organizations large and small face the demands of technology innovation without understanding the importance of asset recovery in the update process.
