Cash rescued

Cash rescued from recycling

12 February 2020

Imagine spending years saving up enough cash to purchase a surprise present for your loved one only to accidentally recycle the electronic heater used as the safe storage place for that cash!

This is what happened to Mr Aziz Moulai who went on holiday and while on holiday the cash containing heater was recycled by his wife! A panicked call was made to Greenwich Reuse and Recycling Centre, Nathan Way London SE28 0AF. The quick actions from Veolia’s supervisor allowed the lorry load of waste electronics to be tracked and quarantined by SWEEEP Kuusakoski. 

SWEEEP Kuusakoski are a large-scale waste electronics recycler in Kent processing about 150 tonnes a day of broken electronic gadgets. The cash containing delivery from Greenwich had around 3,600 items of electronic waste and finding the one item was a classic needle in haystack situation. SWEEEP’s diligent staff started sorting through the electronics late in the afternoon and then had to finish next morning when daylight returned. 

The significant and life changing sum of money was found distributed through the load, but all was collected together and handed back to Aziz today (12th Feb 2020) who said “Really, I can’t find words to thank you guys…thank you so very very much”
