Pennsylvania Waste Management Facility Uncovers Small Fortune in Coins


A Pennsylvania waste management facility has amassed a staggering $10 million in lost coins since it started extracting them from trash in 2017, according to a company executive. The Reworld waste processing plant in Morrisville employs sifting machines to meticulously remove and sort coins from incinerated garbage before washing them clean.

As a worker and reporter sifted through a bin at the facility, Guardino explained the process, highlighting how one person’s trash can become another’s treasure. “We process about 20 million tons of waste a year,” she said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Reworld began sorting through coins in 2017. Out of the $10 million collected, approximately $6 million were deemed suitable for re-circulation. This $6 million was subsequently turned over to a third-party company for counting and depositing into local banks, as reported by FOX Business.
