For many years, Seward residents have joined together in the interest of our natural environment. Ongoing projects serve the goal of protecting the Mississippi River bluff, protecting our lakes from pollution, and raising awareness of dangers in our air and soil. From community gardens to compost education and clean energy sources, the Environment Committee has always worked hard together to improve our quality of life.  The Environment Committee currently does not meet regularly.  Rather they work on issues as they arise.  The EC hosts the Earth Day clean up each year with Minneapolis Parks.  In 2018 Seward will host 3 clean up sites on April 21st from 9:30 – Noon.

  • 24th Street and the West River Road
  • 29th Ave. and the Midtown Greenway
  • 2515 South 9th St. on the North side of Seward Towers West

The Environment Committee has put together some resources for SNG:

Getting around the Twin Cities from Seward

Seward Guide for Unwanted Items

Organics Recycling Guide

Locations for Safe Disposal of CFL Bulbs
