Producer Resources

The AMS Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) enables producers to comply with their regulatory responsibilities for recycling antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters. All eligible producers are welcome to join our PRO.

The Resource Productivity & Recovery Authority (RPRA) determines a producer’s obligation to register and report. Producer information and updates about compliance with the HSP Regulation is available on the RPRA website.

Our Customer Agreement, PRO Guidebook, Policies and Webinar materials are available to current and prospective customers on request.

Reporting Schedule

PRO customers are required to submit quarterly reports of supplied quantities to the WeRecycle Portal and are invoiced on the following schedule:

Sales Period Report Due Invoice Date
Q1 (January 1 – March 31) April 30 May 1
Q2 (April 1 – June 30) July 31 August 1
Q3 (July 1 – September 30) October 31 November 1
Q4 (October 1- December 31) January 31 February 1

When you receive your invoice, please ensure reported quantities and associated fees are in line with expectations.

If an error is made in one of your reports, the AMS PRO Adjustment Policy outlines the requirements, timelines and process to request changes — contact us for a copy of the policy and the adjustment request forms.

We are available to assist with any questions about reporting and best practices: producers@autostewardship.ca

Fee Rates

AMS is committed to predictable fee rates by providing customers ample notice and we work 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.

The AMS Board of Directors set fee rates for the 2022 sales data periods in September 2021. The rates are unchanged from the previously published PRO rates for Q3 and Q4 2021 sales data periods.

Rates for 2022 sales are summarized in the table below for each material’s unit of measure.
