Working hand in hand with WabiSabi, the Solid Waste Special Service District No. 1 recycling center experienced a community that came together through a Moab Solutions event that sent seven University of Kansas students to team up with district employees to help clean up the facility Jan. 8 and 9.

The University of Kansas’ Alternative Breaks program was a boost to our rural community — the community recycling center being just one of several events which benefited from students volunteering their time to assist.

Brave souls each as they diligently worked for two days in the cold, wet conditions; their strong backs being put to the test as they picked up every rain-soaked recyclable item and disposed of them in their proper places at the recycling operations.

Thank you WabiSabi. May each of the volunteers be warmed by a heartfelt “thank you.”
