The Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC) has reached the time year again for our annual membership renewal, and we hope we can count on the support of our members and sponsors in 2017, our 20th year in service to Mississippi! We also invite those individuals and organizations committed to responsible solid waste management through source reduction, reuse and recycling that are not yet members to join the MRC today! Our members make the work of the MRC possible. We thank all of the members who have supported us over the years, and we encourage new members to partner with us as we continue our efforts to educate residents on the benefits of recycling and promote the growth of the recycling industry in Mississippi.
Through your membership, you enable the MRC to maintain our sponsorship and promotion of various state recycling projects and events including the funding of student scholarships and school recycling grants, the recognition of excellence in recycling in the state, and the education of our citizens on the importance of recycling to Mississippi.
For example, in the past year alone, the MRC has:
- Awarded 5 schools throughout the State of Mississippi with recycling program grants;
- Partnered with the Mississippi Beverage Association to provide scholarships to 10 students at Mississippi colleges and universities with environmental studies and interests;
- Recognized 5 organizations for their outstanding work in promoting and growing recycling in their area with our Environmental Hero, “Recycler of the Year” awards;
- Recognized an exceptional young lady, Ms. Becca Blair, as “Recycling Star” for her commitment to growing recycling in her community.
- Sponsored our Annual Recycling Conference: “Staying the Course with Recycling” in Biloxi, Mississippi;
- Sponsored our Annual Recycling Awareness Day as a joint event with Keep Mississippi Beautiful at the State Capitol Building; and
- Provided information to our members on numerous grant funding opportunities, new programs, workshops, webinars, conferences and other resources to promote recycling in the state.
We offer a variety of membership levels, including those for individuals, government entities, non-profits, businesses and trade associations. Each of these levels comes with many benefits, including discounts to MRC events and access to resources. Learn more.
