Our sister organization, the Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC), is hosting its annual recycling conference in Ridgeland on Oct. 25. MRC is hosting the conference at Holmes Community College in Ridgeland. The MRC State Recycling Conference draws representatives from local governments, state and federal agencies, universities and colleges, businesses and non-profit organizations (including Keep America Beautiful affiliates!) as well as recycling and solid waste professionals to participate in informative sessions and networking opportunities.
As one of Mississippi’s most decorated communities for its great shopping, beautiful green spaces and long-standing commitment to growing recycling, Ridgeland will be a good destination for the one-day conference. The meeting is preceded by a 20-Year Anniversary Celebration Reception on October 24 at Anjou Restaurant.
“As the chair of the MRC board of directors, I invite you all of our Keep America Beautiful affiliates here in Mississippi to attend this conference to learn about the latest in recycling,” said Sarah Kountouris, Keep Mississippi Beautiful executive director.
