Parts of Canada Have "Recycling" Laws
But, the funds are consumed by the bureaucracies which impose them. So when you buy a can of paint, you pay $0.85 even if you return the can empty. If you buy a CD/DVD you pay $0.21 in case you might pirate a song or movie. When you buy a monitor (any kind), you pay by the size. It can be high but no one seems to know how to recycle an LED screen. Actually, the "recycling" fee is not for recycling. Recyclers make their money from the "scrap" value or gov't subsidies. Guess that makes sense since you pay a Goods & Services tax anyway when you buy new or used stuff. But still, the imposition of digital TV has contributed tons of working TV sets with lead and other heavy metals in them just so someone/gov't can make money selling bandwidth or new sets. As Alexei Sayle used to say, "It's a Strange, Strange World, Innit?".
