Recycling & Volunteer Opportunities for Moab
|Solutions volunteers stand in front of the 72 pounds
of recycling they removed from a mile of the Loop Road.
Moab Solutions promotes the respect, rethink, reduce, reuse, and recycle lifestyle
through a variety of hands-on projects anyone can help with. They remove
trash and recycling from the streams, along the highways and byways,
and on the trails, all over this gorgeous region. They coordinate the
Friends of the Parkway program for the City of Moab, are the creators
of Common Thread, a project aimed at getting diverse user groups to prevent
damage and keep areas clean during large off-road events, as well as
a variety of other projects.
“It’s great fun to be out in the fresh air, going at a slower pace, and
enjoying scenery up close. An added benefit is that you see the results
of your labor right away. All natural areas look amazing when beer cans
and bottles, fast food wrappers, and other debris is removed for recycling
or proper disposal”, says Sara Melnicoff, one of the founders of the group.
If you or your group would like to devote part of the time you spend in
Moab on a project designed to enhance the beauty of the region, please
give the Solutions a call, or send them an email. They will be happy to
custom design a project that will work for you or your group.
