Producer Resources

AMS 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

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

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 PRO’s 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:

Fee Rates

AMS is committed to predictable fee rates by providing customers ample notice of any changes and working to maintain rate stability.  AMS is not for profit and operates on a cost-recovery basis. If operating reserves for a material category exceed requirements, AMS may set fees to intentionally run a deficit and draw down reserves in future years.

The AMS Board of Directors set fee rates for the 2024 sales data periods in September 2023. Material fee rates for 2024 are unchanged from 2023 rates.

Fees rates since the inception of the AMS PRO are included in the table below for each material’s unit of measure.
