The Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC) is now accepting nominations for the Environmental Hero Awards, which recognize outstanding recycling programs and organizations in Mississippi. Please help us by nominating a deserving program and organization that you believe has made a difference in the state. The award is open to local governments, state and federal agencies, businesses/corporations, non-profits and educational institutions. In addition, the MRC honors a new program (less than 2 years old) each year in one or more of these categories. Nominations are due February 13, 2017.
The MRC evaluates nominations based on promotion of recycling, the duration and extent of the recycling program, the overall environmental stewardship, and the manner in which recycling has improved community waste handling and environmental practices.
This awards program is part of the MRC’s continued efforts to educate our residents on the benefits of recycling and promote the growth of the recycling industry in Mississippi.
