The ring was discarded with candy rappers
JERSEY CITY — A day after accidentally throwing out her diamond 3-carat engagement ring with the trash, a New York City woman got it back thanks to some digging and a little luck at a Jersey City transfer station.
Ashlee Palacio mistakenly tossed the ring in the garbage while cleaning candy wrappers off her nightstand Tuesday morning, CBS-2 reported. She quickly realized her mistake and called the city’s Department of Sanitation, which promised not to discard the contents of the truck.
Fortunately for Palachio, the Midtown apartment she shares with her finance Michael Diamond is the last stop on the trash truck’s route.
The next evening Diamond and three others trekked to a Jersey City trash transfer facility to try to find the 3-carat ring from among a pile off 100 bags, the report said.
The quartet knew Palacio’s ring would be in a white bag with black ties that contained candy wrappers and a Halloween cookie box inside. Within 15 minutes, Diamond dug up the ring after seeing something glowing in a bag he’d torn open.
He then relayed the news to Palachio via Snapchat as she was stuck at work.
