That's not new. We've been getting the reduced rate for two years. Anyone turning 65 should apply for the increased Homestead Exemption and Waste Management is right down the hall. Win! Win!

Pardon the stupid question, but do other counties have this senior discount? Or is this a waste mgmt group only in Rankin county that does this? My parents are in Hinds county--that's why I'm asking. Thanks.
