Yes. MOOP means "Matter Out Of Place", which is a useful and interesting way to think of stuff, instead of "trash" or "litter".

LEAVE NO TRACE: No trash receptacles are provided.
Please take everything you bring to the event back home with you. ... Contribute to our long-term survival: Pack it in. Pack it out. You are responsible for the condition of your campsite and nearby public areas of Black Rock City. Clean up as you go!

There is no garbage collection service at Burning Man. Every camp is responsible for its refuse. We are ALL responsible for trash in Black Rock City. Trash is EVERYTHING you bring here: tent stakes, bottle caps, ashes, wood debris, orange peels, cigarette butts, pistachio shells, boa and rope fibers, sequins-even abandoned bikes. Use a tarp under firewood and other loose materials. Do not put trash in the portable toilets. Even small trash will clog the cleaning hose for the potty. The toilet will fill and can't be emptied. When you see trash on the ground in BRC, pick it up and take it with you! Better yet, prevent trash from happening. Observe this simple rule: Never let it hit the ground.
