CUs dumpster dive yields 1000 childrens books
LEWISTON, Idaho (10/15/10--An employee of Clearwater CU, Lewiston, Idaho, found something unexpected in the credit union’s trash dumpster Wednesday morning--1,000 books. Debbie Taylor, an employee of the $30 million asset credit union, went to take out the trash at the start of her shift and discovered a large number of books in the dumpster, Taylor told klewtv.com (Oct. 14). “We went dumpster diving and got them out and saved all but about five of them,” she said. Many of the books—most of them children’s books--appeared brand new. The credit called the Lewiston Police, which is investigating. If the books are not claimed in two weeks, they will be donated to a worthy cause, Taylor said.
