About Our Services

Thank you for your interest in Automotive Materials Stewardship. We are here to assist producers of antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters in meeting their recycling obligations.

Under the Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) Regulation producers either manage their obligations themselves or join a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO).

AMS is registered as a PRO with the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA). Our website has additional information on the benefits of joining the Producers’ PRO.

This document provides a step-by-step guide for producers to make AMS their PRO and benefit from our comprehensive services.

If you require assistance with your registration, please contact us at or 1-888-575-4870 or visit our website at

This step is required for producers that have not yet registered with RPRA, including those new to the Ontario market. Going forward, producers that were customers of other PROs and that move over to AMS will need to inform RPRA of their new PRO services provider.

RPRA determines if producers of HSP materials are obligated or exempt. Producers are required to complete a registration form and email it to RPRA as an attachment. Registrations were due by November 30, 2021.

HSP registry information is available on the RPRA website:

The following information must be provided to RPRA:

  • Contact details
  • PRO retained by the producer
  • Registration Report (total weight of each applicable HSP supplied in Ontario in 2018, 2019 and 2020 based on new definitions)
  • Registry fees
  • If you are a supplier of oil filters your oil filter target will also be provided via the RPRA registration form. Please keep this information on hand as you will be asked to provide your individual target to AMS PRO.

For assistance and further information contact RPRA at or1-833-600-0530

RPRA will provide all registered producers an 8-digit Registry ID Number. Once you have this number, you will need to login to the WeRecycle Portal and add it to your account.

Go to Account Management and select View/Edit Account.


Select Programs from the top menu and enter the 8-digit number in the Registry ID field.


Complete Your Customer Agreement

As part of our PRO services launch in 2021, AMS committed to updating the Customer Agreement to reflect producer feedback and our operational experience as regulatory requirements were clarified by the RPRA. Following consultation with customers early in 2022 and incorporating feedback provided during onboarding, the Board of Directors approved changes to the Customer Agreement that will take effect January 1, 2023. The current Customer Agreement applies until December 31, 2022.
