Green Living

Preserving the Environment
Wayzata's green goals reflect the community's need for greenhouse gas reduction, sustainable use of natural resources and preservation of the environment. Going green starts with simple things: water conservation, recycling and waste reduction, wise energy use and caring for the quality of life in your neighborhood.

Sustainable Living
The City of Wayzata prides itself in being a pioneer in the area of green, sustainable living in the West Metro. From a forward-looking organics recycling program to our stewardship of Lake Minnetonka and the Big Woods, our walkable, liveable village embraces the natural beauty that surrounds us.
