Mo Mueller
Transportation, Recycling Engineer

Mo loves to drive all over the Metro area to help OVR customers, which is good as he does the vast majority of pickups at OVR. He will happily drive from Stephen in Northwestern Minnesota or Grand Marais on Lake Superior and back to our shop in Roseville without blinking an eye. Just be sure he has his Pepsi, his bacon flavored sunflower seeds and good radio, of course!

Mo also works as a full time bartender in downtown Minneapolis where he also resides.
