The Mississippi Recycling Coalition is now accepting nominations for our annual Environmental Hero “Recycler of the Year” Awards, which recognize outstanding recycling programs and organizations in Mississippi. Please help us by nominating a deserving program or organization that you believe has made a difference in the state.
Nominations are due January 29, 2018.
The awards cover the following categories:
- Local Governments
- State and Federal Agencies
- Non-Profit Organizations
- Educational Institutions.
In addition, we honor a new program (less than 2 years old) in one or more of these categories.
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.
