Mississippi Inland Cleanup Program a trash-free education and cleanup event initiative

ABOUT US

The Mississippi Inland Cleanup Program (MSICP) is a newly funded trash-free education and cleanup event program sponsored by Mississippi State University Coastal Research and Extension Center (Biloxi, MS) as an expansion of the Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program. This new program will extend the efforts of the coastal program by removing debris from the community through events (land and water-based) and provide outreach to help stop trash at its inland source.

MSICP aims to provide trash-free education and cleanup events throughout the southeast region (including: Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Stone, George, Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Perry, Greene, Jefferson Davis, Covington, Jones, Wayne, Jasper, Clarke, Newton, Lauderdale, Neshoba, and Kemper counties).
