Where Coins Go to Die

The coins in your couch, under the seat of your car, or that accidentally ends up in the trash is now more business for waste management facilities. Americans throw away up to $68 Million in coins a year and waste facilities are dedicating resources to processing trash and find treasure according to a New York Times article. We are not only throwing change away, but we leaving it behind. At airports across the country, people leave change behind when they go through security, and TSA has to report how much change they’ve accumulated over the year. Passengers left more than $900K behind at checkpoints in 2020. With all this change being thrown away, a new kind of treasure hunter is emerging.
