I purchased one in April and paid eco fee. Why is it being refunded and do April purchases qualify?

"Under the new Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) Regulation, producers (manufacturers and retailers) are individually accountable and financially responsible for recycling their used products. Previously, the onus was on the industry as a whole using one recycling program with set fees.

Now, producers have the choice to recycle products themselves or work with organizations that will do it for them. That means producers can decide whether to absorb the recycling costs or pass them onto customers either by building them into a product's total price or charging a separate fee."
