Tony Hwang said his mother stored $6,000 in a bag inside the tape slot of a VCR, but didnít tell anyone. Her family didnít know about the loot when they took the VCR to a high school recycling event.
KOMO reports workers at Renton-based 1 Green Plant searched through six containers of old computers, video games and other appliances hauled away from the event. They eventually found it.
On Thursday, company owner Michael Szanyi reunited the woman with the VCR and cash.
He joked that she should keep it in a bank, not in a VCR.
