You will soon have a second place to use your annual dump pass.

 Every year, Mississippi Mills residents get a dump pass. It lets you get rid of large items for free, one load up to 500 KG, at the Howie Road transfer station on the March Road. That site is open Wednesday (except in winter) and Saturday year round.

 Beginning September 1, you will have a second dump choice. The Topps Waste Management site at 9271 Cavanaugh Rd. in Beckwith will honor your dump passes. The site operates Monday through Saturday, and for many Ramsay residents will be much closer.

 Taking waste to Topps will also save the town about $50 per tonne.
