Wallet Found at the Recycling Center

The MCMUA thanked Eric Gabrielson and his staff at Republic Service for finding a wallet on the sorting line at the Mine Hill material recycling facility and helping to find its owner.

On October 1, as soon as he discovered the wallet, Gabrielson contacted the MCMUA because it contained a driver's license for a resident in Morris Plains. Morris Plains is one of the MCMUA's curbside recycling collection towns. MCMUA staff picked up the wallet from the Republic Services office, found the owner who had been searching for it, and returned it to the delight of the resident who had recently moved to Randolph.

Gabrielson said, "The Republic Services staff members are honest, hardworking, and glad that the wallet was reunited with its owner."
