Automotive Materials Stewardship (AMS)

clipboard_eee71bc77afbd93d55e5f248893b0ad4e.png Automotive Materials Stewardship (AMS) is a national, not-for-profit organization that manages the collection and recycling of used antifreeze, oil filters and oil containers on behalf of producers.

We’re industry-led and industry-funded, helping businesses contribute to a circular economy by taking responsibility for the automotive waste materials they sell to Ontarians.

AMS helps create convenient, environmentally sustainable ways for consumers and businesses to recycle automotive waste in order to divert these materials from landfill.
