EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Four Atlantic County Utilities Authority employees have helped a New Jersey woman find her wedding ring after it was accidentally thrown away. NJ Advance Media reports that Ruth Watson's 10-year-old son thought he was being helpful when he threw a plastic bag out with the trash last Friday. However, inside that bag was Watson's wedding ring, wallet, and some other items. By the time Watson realized the trash had already been collected, so she called the Atlantic County Utilities Authority and explained what the bag looked like and all that was inside. Jovani Quiles, along with three workers, spent an hour-and-a-half searching the landfill until they found the bag.
