Workers go trash-picking for Mass. woman's rings
Mass. woman recovers 5 rings with help of waste workers who dug through mountain of trash
By The Associated Press

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) ' An Attleboro, Mass., woman is praising the city's trash collection company after its workers helped her dig through mountains of stinking garbage to find five valuable rings she inadvertently threw away, including her engagement and wedding bands.

Deb Kirby says she took the rings off one day last week to dry them after washing her hands. She tells The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/Jqchqs ) she wrapped them in a paper towel, got distracted and tossed them.

Distraught, she called Waste Management.



The company had the truck that picked up her garbage unload at a transfer station.

She knew the rings were in a black bag with a blue drawstring. She and Waste Management workers found it in just 30 minutes.

She says she's "extremely grateful and so very impressed" by Waste Management.
