AMS is the Producers’ PRO

AMS is the Producers’ PRO

Ontario’s new regulatory framework for recycling automotive service materials creates new legal obligations for producers and introduces options for meeting their obligations.

Producers can establish their own recycling system or they can join a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) like AMS to carry out their regulatory responsibilities.

As a PRO, AMS is uniquely positioned to provide producers a low-risk, turn-key compliance solution built on a solid track record since we began serving producers in 2017. We offer a proven, industry-led option that will continue delivering reliable services and environmental performance.


Industry Led: AMS was established by producers, for producers, in anticipation of Ontario’s move to individual producer responsibility. Governed by members of the Ontario automotive industry, AMS has delivered full regulatory compliance with its program obligations under its approved Industry Stewardship Plan (ISP).

Not For Profit: Our structure has enabled board members to focus on doing what’s right for producers and the environment, seeking to make neither a profit nor a loss. We offer services as a PRO without the need for producers to provide new start-up financing.

Fee Rate Stability: A main goal for the creation of AMS was to provide published and predictable fee rates for the materials we manage. The promise will continue for our PRO service offering.

Reporting Service and Support: Producers and supply chain partners will continue to use the proven and secure WeRecycle Portal for online material reporting. And the Steward Services team will continue to assist with technical and administrative questions.

Supply Chain Performance: AMS has managed the collection of more than 49,000 tonnes of materials from 12,000+ service centres and hundreds of depots/events, coordinating with processors to achieve environmental outcomes.

Effective Advocacy: AMS regularly engages with regulators to advance member interests and collaborates with NUOMAAC and UOMA programs throughout Canada to conduct research and share best practices.
