Celebrating 20 Years: THANK YOU!
As we celebrate twenty years serving the recycling needs of
our community and beyond, we say “Thank You!”

kept 868,651 Tons out of the landfill since we began in 1999!

As we enter our third decade, we pledge to continue serving you with responsible, transparent and efficient recycling solutions today and for future generations to come.
Happy Earth Week! Why is Recycling Still Important?
Challenges in the recycling industry have left some wondering – why even do it?

With a recent onslaught of negative stories in the media, we wanted to take a moment to reassure you that no, recycling is not doomed.

To celebrate Earth Week, let's review the current challenges in the industry, how we're tackling them, and why recycling is still so important:

Stop Dreaming. Start Innovating.
The First National Bank in Sioux Falls selected Millennium to be featured in their Stop Dreaming Start Doing campaign. We are honored to have been selected and are happy to share the final product with you!

The crew from Passenger Productions came to Millennium and SEAM to interview CEO Jake Anderson and develop a short micro-documentary to showcase how we are living out the Stop Dreaming Start Doing mindset locally (or in our case Stop Dreaming Start Innovating).

The video focuses on how the company came to be and how it has evolved with an emphasis on the importance of team work. According to Jake, "One person can’t run a business himself or herself, but it takes a number of really good people that are willing or buy into the same vision.”

See the spots on our blog, the FNBSF website, social media and even on TV!
