Wedding Ring Found In Dump Amid 10 Tons Of Trash

Sanitation workers sorted through 10 tons of trash to recover a wedding ring accidentally thrown away by a New Jersey couple.

Bridget Pericolo had placed the ring in a cup that her husband, Angelo, threw out with the garbage before leaving for work. When he realized the mistake, he contacted the town's sanitation supervisor, who suggested coming by the Parsippany dump.

Supervisor Michael Brotons and sanitation workers Edgar Lopez and Joseph McGee dug through the refuse until they found the garbage bag that Angelo Pericolo had thrown away.

The Pericolos recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary.

    If this had happened to me, I'd make sure to reward those guys...especially considering all the effort and trouble they went through. They did'nt have to do this,but did it anyway. That's really going above and beyond. Anyone know if the workers were suitably compensated ?

    It was so awesome to hear this wonderful story, not to mention that the couple has been married for 55 years, WOW!!! It would be so nice if everyone kept the sacrament of marriage like they have.
