Community Service

At SKB Environmental we believe in helping build and strengthen our communities and region. It's part of what our company is all about—that's the kind of people on our team.

The SKB Environmental Rosemount Trust Fund was established to provide for numerous community programs and activities for Rosemount's citizens. The Trust Fund covered the costs to purchase the land for The Dakota County Robert Trail Library in Rosemount. The Trust Fund has also covered costs to construct several athletic fields and provide street lighting in Rosemount. Other past beneficiaries of the fund include: The Boy Scouts of America, the Dakota County Health Department, Alternative Learning Center, Meals on Wheels, and local youth sports - just to name a few.

“SKB donated landfill space to help the City of St. Paul and the Corps of Engineers create the Highwood Park Nature Preserve. Many thanks. . .”

SKB provides Spring Clean-up Days in local communities, offering residents an opportunity to clean up their cities at no cost to them.

SKB aided in establishing an environmental studies curriculum at Simley High School in Inver Grove Heights, a model for Minnesota Schools.
