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 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 supports collection from Ontario residents, municipalities and Indigenous communities.
