A man who accidentally tossed $23,000 into the recycling bin reunited with his life savings after a worker at a recycling facility in Northern California spotted a shoebox stuffed with money.
When the man from Ashland, Oregon, realized his mistake, the recycling bin had already been emptied into a truck bound for the Recology sorting facility in Humboldt County.
According to the facility’s general manager, most of the recyclables from the truck had been sorted by the time the man contacted Recology. Workers were nonetheless told to be on the lookout for the box.
Someone spotted the box down the sorting line and recovered all but $320. The money somehow stayed in the box during the 200-mile trip to the facility.
