A recycling company worker displays a lost wedding ring found in the bin.
28 year-old Martin wright from England lost his wedding ring while throwing away cardboard in a recycling bin. Unable to reach anyone at the waste contractor's office by phone because it was Sunday, he desperately tweeted, "Just dropped my wedding ring into a cardboard recycling container. All the phone numbers on the box are closed. What can I do?" Martin sent the message along with a photo of the recycling bin, and in just 30 minutes an employee of the waste contractor called him to say he would cancel the next day's collection. The next morning, staff searched the bin and found his ring in a discarded box of tea bags. Martin has been married to his wife for 18 months and is reportedly under suspicion this was a plot to relieve him of trash duties.
