Airlines are required by law to return baggage to the owners within 90 days. However, if this cannot be done, for example, the passenger has not been in touch for three months, the luggage ends up in the center in Scottsboro.
Of course, not everything is sold that is forgotten in suitcases – about a third have to be thrown into the trash can. For example, groceries and all underwear. Another third donate to charity.
