On Monday, March 11, the Grand County League of Women Voters will give a presentation at the Grand County Library overviewing topics related to recycling in Moab, including challenges that come with recycling in a rural place and how it all works.
The event will start at 5:15 p.m. and run for about an hour. It will feature speakers from local entities like Monument Waste Services, Grand County’s Solid Waste Management District and Eco Cycle, which is a recycling non-profit organization in Boulder, Colorado.
According to a press release from event organizers, topics of discussion at the event will include the costs associated with recycling and how they are offset by selling recyclable commodities, the impacts of single-stream recycling and how plastic can be turned into fuel.
Members of the Moab City Council will be at the event to participate in the presentation and answer audience questions about the particulars of recycling here.
Also on the panel will be Grace Szczepaniak, a representative from Renewology, a company founded at MIT in 2011, “with the vision to be a technology leader in developing solutions to landfill-bound waste,” according to the company’s website.
