Gary Capan is a foreman for Republic Services, the waste collection agency in Oberlin, Ohio. Recently he got a frantic call from one of their customers. This customer had accidentally tossed out an envelope containing $25,000, and one of their trucks had already collected their trash.
This is when Capan went into action. He directed the truck away from the landfill, and sent it to the recycling center instead. That’s when Gary and his team swung into action. The crew dumped the trash out of the truck, and began digging through the debris by hand. One of the 10 crew members looking for the bag containing the envelope with the cash found it!
