Beginning in June, Mississippi Mills enters into a new seven-year recycling collection, processing and marketing contract with a new service provider. This new contract will include a launch of expanded Blue Box services for residents, including #3 to # 7 plastics. For folks in Pakenham ward, your biweekly blue box pickup changes to weekly like the rest of MM.

The Roads and Public Works Department is working closely with its municipal partners (Carleton Place, Montague, Beckwith and Drummond North Elmsley) to assemble and launch promotional and educational materials over the coming months.

This is part of an ongoing goal to reduce waste going to landfills.
