SEED stands for Stillwater Eco-Empowerment Directive and is a collaboration between the Main Street Independent Business Alliance (IBA) and BizRecycling (a program of the Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy Board) with its primary goal being to help businesses develop and improve recycling programs that save them money and increase efficiencies.

SEED offers education and assistance to Washington County businesses that would like to access $10,000 grants through the BizRecycling program to start or enhance recycling efforts.  Grant funds can be used to purchase recycling bins, supplies and to cover staff time for training purposes.

We know you’re busy

BizRecycling offers free site assessments from a Minnesota Waste Wise representative (a $150-$300 savings). The SEED program will answer any questions you may have and will assist you in scheduling your assessment, which will require a maximum of 15-20 minutes of your time.  At the time of the assessment your Waste Wise representative will suggest an improved waste plan and start the grant application process for you.
