LAX Gets $30,000 in Coins
Of all airports in the nation, LAX has earned the number one spot for airports that make the most money when it comes to coins left at security, usually left in the gray buckets and sometimes purposefully left behind if travelers are headed to a foreign country. About $30,000 a year is collected at LAX, according to the Transportation Security Administration, per KNBC. Where does the money go? LAX officials told LAist they don't see a penny as it is collected by the feds. "It all goes to our general operating fund," Nico Melendez of the TSA told us.
