New hidden fees for Macs

Well, not just for Macs, and not always hidden!

As of April 1, 2009, Ontario requires brand owners, first importers into Ontario, and manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment to remit new (sometimes) hidden fees for tech products http://www.ontarioelectronicstewardship.ca/stewards/fees.html

Ontario seems to think these fees are fun because they say: Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) is a non-profit corporation established by manufacturers, retailers, and other stakeholders to develop a waste diversion plan for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)”.
