AMS is committed to predictable fee rates by providing customers ample notice and works to maintain rate stability. AMS operates on a cost-recovery basis. If fee revenue exceeds the requirements of the program, any excess funds will be returned to producers through future fee reductions or adjustments.
Producers are reminded that their new regulatory obligations for recycling antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters take effect on October 1, 2021. AMS PRO is uniquely able to offer producers a low-risk, turn-key compliance solution built on a proven track record as a not for profit that has delivered stable fees and strong supply-chain performance.
