New responsibilities for recycling auto service materials are here.

Ontario is implementing a new regulatory framework in 2021 that makes each producer responsible for the collection and management of their used antifreeze and antifreeze containers, oil filters and empty oil containers.

New Regulatory Framework

The province’s Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) Regulation takes effect October 1, 2021, creating new producer obligations and completing a transition that began in 2016.

AMS is the Producers’ PRO
