Landfill Workers Dig Through Garbage to Recover Ring


*LISTEN* as we talked about the a waste collection truck crew and workers at a North Carolina landfill who came to the rescue when a woman realized some of her rings had accidentally ended up in the trash. Chuck and Pam Smith, who recently relocated to New Hanover County, said Pam was cleaning the house recently when she realized some of her rings were missing. They flagged down the Select Recycling Waste Services truck, but crew members Elliott Holliday and Kendrick Grady had already picked up trash from 25 other houses since visiting the Smith residence. The workers called ahead to the New Hanover County landfill and told workers they had a truckload of trash that they needed to dump out and search through for some missing rings. Kedar Brunson, who was in charge of the landfill on that day, gathered a crew of about a half dozen workers to help go through the mound of waste from the truck. The search lasted for hours, finally ending just five minutes before closing time. Learn more from the UPI article here!
