Introducing Automotive Materials Stewardship (AMS)

Automotive Materials Stewardship Inc. (AMS) was established to represent the interests of Canadian businesses by creating convenient, environmentally sustainable ways for consumers to recycle waste from the automotive sector.

We are a national, non-profit organization, bringing together key players to achieve better recycling performance. We’re industry-led and industry-funded, working on behalf of Canadian businesses that participate in stewardship programs, as well as partnering with provincial stewardship organizations, provincial governments, local governments and waste management companies to provide recycling and waste management services.

We have been asked by stewards of automotive materials to prepare and submit for Waste Diversion Ontario’s (WDO) approval an Industry Stewardship Plan (ISP). In accordance with the Waste Diversion Act (WDA) and WDO’s Procedures for Industry Stewardship Plans, AMS is submitting this ISP to WDO for the following designated materials:

  • Antifreeze, and the containers in which they are contained
  • Oil filters – after they have been used for their intended purpose
  • Containers that have a capacity of 30 litres or less and that were manufactured and used for the purpose of containing lubricating oil
