This year, we’re headed to Ridgeland, one of Mississippi’s most decorated communities for its great shopping, beautiful green spaces and long-standing commitment to growing recycling. The meeting will be held at Holmes’ McGowan Workforce Training Center.

In addition to the conference, MRC invites you to attend our 20-Year Anniversary Celebration Reception to be held the evening prior to the conference on Tuesday, October 24, from 5:30 p.m. until at Anjou Restaurant located in the Township of Ridgeland.  We hope you will join us as we celebrate MRC’s 20 years of service to the state of Mississippi by meeting up with old and new friends alike to enjoy fun, food, fellowship and live entertainment from Chris Gill!
