About Us

Investing in

Redwood, Renville, Yellow Medicine and Lyon Counties in Minnesota

Garbage guys with a sense of humor, but serious about keeping your neighborhood clean — Sweetman Sanitation.

The Sweetmans grew up in the Redwood Falls area. Sweetman Sanitation is a family owned and operated business comprised of Ray Sweetman, Dominic Sweetman, Shannon Sweetman and Jonathan Sweetman.

Shannon and Ray were married after high school and, let's be honest, Shannon is the one that keeps everyone alive so she's an absolute vital part of the Sweetman Sanitation team.

Ray and Dominic are brothers who grew up in the Redwood community. Both of their families are comprised of graduates and current students at Redwood Area Schools. They are lifelong citizens of the area, growing up themselves and now raising children here too.

Jonathan Sweetman is the carbon copy of his father, Ray. Jon is now also building and raising a family in the Redwood community!

Redwood Falls has been such and continues to be a great community for them. This is a great opportunity for the entire Sweetman family to put their roots down more and invest in the area. They look forward to helping Redwood, Renville and Yellow Medicine Counties keep their local communities clean.
