Hall County Solid Waste Director Johnnie Vickers tellsa woman made a distraught call into one landfill Friday saying she had accidentally thrown out her jewelry. Vickers says timing is everything in the game to recover something.
He assembled a team of five employees to help sift through trash where trucks bring roughly 300 tons of it each day. After checking logs they narrowed their search to a 20-minute window and 9 to 10 tons of garbage.
Hours later the employees picked up one last bag and it had the jewelry inside.
