UK Couple Accidentally Throw Away £15,000 In A Box At A Recycling Plant by Mynd44: 10:16pm On Dec 29, 2019
A couple who accidentally threw away £15,000 in cash have had their money returned thanks to honest recycling centre staff.

The duo from Burnham-On-Sea had taken several boxes of rubbish from the house they were clearing, belonging to a deceased relative, to a recycling depot in Midsomer Norton, Somerset.

Unknown to them a substantial sum of money was tucked inside.

Eagle-eyed staff were looking for an electrical cable when they spotted the cash inside one of the boxes.



The honest workers then contacted Avon and Somerset Police who found the couple with the help of CCTV footage from the recycling centre.

Officers identified the car that had dropped them off and were then able to find the couple's address.

At Radstock Police station they told police that they had been clearing a relative's house in Bath and dropped off boxes at the recycling centre.

The couple added that the relative had been known to hide money in strange places around the house.

Avon and Somerset Police said on Facebook : 'We would like to say a big thank you to the staff at the recycling centre.

'Without their diligent attitude, integrity and assistance, the family would never have known about the money found, and we would not have been able to return it to them, especially in time for Christmas.

Now, this is honesty. If the staff had gone with the money, it will be quite difficult to trace him, yet he returned it to the owner.

This is unlike a case where about N98m was mistakenly paid into an acc, the account owner "returned" the money and illiterates started praising him for "honesty" as if he had the option of not "returning" it. undecided

DonFreshmoney:
Foolish workers... I hope he or she is extremely rich for them to miss this kind of opportunity. £15,000 Is over 7.2million naira...

To you, he is a foolish worker for "missing" a good opportunity, but to him, it is not an opportunity. He places more premium on self discipline and honesty. That is why humans are not and can never be the same. cool
