THE ONTARIO MEDICATIONS RETURN PROGRAM (OMRP)
The OMRP offers a return program for all expired or unused medications. To ensure safe and proper disposal, medications may be dropped off at your local pharmacy, including Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall.
TAKE IT BACK
There is a convenient option for recycling certain products that are best kept out of our landfills. The Municipality of Mississippi Mills has partnered with the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL)to help direct people to non-blue box alternatives. It is supported by the municipalities of North Grenville, Mississippi Mills, Perth and Smiths Falls. A comprehensive list has been generated of local businesses, repair shops, non-profit organizations, waste haulers and recyclers - throughout our Eastern Ontario shopping area - that will accept a variety of materials. The Recyclopedia allows you to look for items by category for example batteries, books, furniture etc.

ANNUAL EXCHANGE DAY
The Municipality of Mississippi Mills will be holding their annual Exchange Day on May 5-7, 2017. This is a day where residents of Mississippi Mills can put items out at the curb they no longer want and others can take the "treasurers". Items can be placed on the curb on Friday, May 5th and must be brought back in (if not taken) Sunday, May 7th.
Please ensure that no items that you do not wish to give away are left near the road.
Disposal of items not taken is the responsibility of the resident-Mississippi Mills will NOT be picking the items up.
For larger items or those of safety concern, a curb side sign may be more appropriate.
Please beware of children's safety, do not place any items out that might have potential danger i.e. refrigerators/freezers with door. Mississippi Mills assumes no responsibility or liability regarding these items.
Please include a sign with your items indicating "Free".
