AMS is a not-for-profit organization that operates a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) financed and governed by brand owners, first importers and other producers that supply designated automotive materials, providing compliance with recycling regulatory requirements.

On behalf of its producer customers, AMS PRO operates a collection network and manages the processing of used antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters, diverting them from landfills and waterways. In addition to managing materials directly from producers, AMS PRO supports collection from Ontario residents, municipalities and Indigenous communities.

The articles below detail how we work with our service provider partners to manage materials:

On behalf of its producer customers, AMS PRO seeks to maximize the efficiency and outcomes of its recycling efforts. Your suggestions and feedback are welcome and can be sent to:
