Ever wonder what happens if you accidentally lose a piece of jewelry down the drain? While some valuables can be found in the toilet trap, occasionally an item will travel all the way to the end of the line:  the wastewater treatment plant. And while jewelry may be something that is commonly lost, plenty of other weird items have been found. In fact, one plant in Berlin has started a “museum” of their most interesting finds.


Check out this article to see for yourself.


And remember, if you do end up losing something down the drain, it may not be lost forever. Call your local municipality to see if it’s surfaced at their wastewater treatment plant.
