Automotive Materials Stewardship logoAutomotive Materials Stewardship (AMS) was established in early 2016 to represent the interests of businesses in the automotive sector to create environmentally sustainable ways for consumers to recycle used automotive products.

The program launched on April 1, 2017. AMS focuses on the recycling of:

  • Oil filters

  • Empty oil containers

  • Antifreeze and antifreeze containers

Following the introduction of Ontario’s Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) Regulation in June 2021, AMS completed the work to launch its Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to assist producers in meeting their new responsibilities for recycling antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters. Learn more about the AMS PRO which will begin operations October 1, 2021.
