In compliance with the Alberta legislation, Dell plans to add the Provincial Environmental Fee to your invoice based upon products selected and a ship to location of Alberta.
Dell's authorized Resellers are responsible for understanding the legislation and complying with it to the extent the law might be applicable to them.
