Minnesota Waste Wise member, Murphy Warehouse Company is no stranger to being green. Since 1995 the company estimates that it has saved over $780,000 through green initiatives and practices. Among Murphy Warehouse's most recent green initiatives is an extensive project to reduce storm water. Outcomes of this project have included the elimination of the city annual storm water fee, previously totaling $68,000 annually, and significantly lower costs in lawn maintenance (fertilizers, mowing, and watering). In addition, the property has become an aesthetically pleasing, colorful site to passers-by, neighbors and employees.
