Each year the Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC) honors outstanding environmental efforts of organizations, businesses, schools, and local governments around the State of Mississippi. Please help us by nominating a deserving person or organization that you believe should be recognized for one of MRC’s annual “Environmental Hero” awards. A panel of judges will use the following criteria to select award winners:
- Promotes recycling as a way to create a better community;
- Conducts continuous recycling and/or environmental programs rather than a one-time project;
- Practices and improves awareness of environmental stewardship; and
- Improves community waste handling and environmental practices.
Deadline for submissions is approximately 48 hours before the Annual MRC Membership and Business Meeting.
