Dumped OBE in London sparks search for owner

An east London waste company which discovered an OBE as they were sorting through house and office clearances are seeking to reunite the medal with its’ owner.

Enviro Waste, a family run business whose depot is based in Leyton, found the rare item attached in a black presentatio
n box, along with formal instructions as to how the prestigious award should be worn.

The OBE, which was in good condition, was attached to a dark red ribbon when it was uncovered amongst other waste items amongst other waste items.

Company bosses have now launched an appeal to find out the recipient of the OBE medal, which is formally known as the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, and is an “order of chivalry” from the  Monarch.

Anyone who has information about the medal or its’ owner should call Enviro Waste directly on 020 3504 5309
