In 2002, Lake Agassiz Regional Development Corporation along with MinnKota Recycling received a rural development grant from the USDA to provide education assistance and training for communities on the proper disposal methods of household hazardous waste and electronics. Their goal was to provide communities residents and business with a structured design on how to implement and develop collection system that are universal and correspond to local needs. They wanted to provide rural communities with access to cost effective management programs of the their municipal solid waste, especially household hazardous and electronic waste. Workshops were held around the state to educate people on this topic, and the information on these websites were at one time provided by a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture - Rural Utilities Service - Water and Environmental Program.
