In Switzerland they just throw this stuff away

The scientists noted that the concentrations found in the wastewater don't pose risks to the environment, and wide-scale recovery wouldn't be worthwhile.

However, this is not the first time that metals have been detected in sewage sludge.

Moreover, the same research team discovered that in this particular area where most manufacturers established their headquarters and shops, the amount of gold was so significant, they could collect it.

Stock for Investors Portfolio: PayPal Holdings, Inc. (PYPL)
Morgan Stanley raised shares of PayPal Holdings from an "equal weight" rating to an "overweight" rating in a report on Wednesday. Currently, 1.17 billion total shares are owned by the public and among those 1.13 billion shares have been available to trade.

In some sites, like Ticino, researchers say the concentrations of gold in the sewage sludge are "sufficiently high for recovery to be potentially worthwhile". "This can be attributed to the presence of several gold refineries in the region", the EAWAG said in a statement. But for the most part, scientists say the metals would not be worth recovering. The study centered on 64 waste treatment plants across Switzerland and claims to the be the first systematic wastewater survey for trace elements in an industrialized country. The researchers investigated the extent to which treatment plants contribute to total fluxes in receiving waters.

Other rare earth metals, like gadolinium and heavy meal niobium, were also found in the Swiss wastewater, the report details.

Switzerland seems like a lovely place to live: snowy mountain peaks to ski, lakeside cities to explore, and 43 kilograms of gold flowing through the sewers that no one seems all that anxious about. However, all analysis came within safe limits, although the EAWAG have warned that little is known as yet about the potential toxicological effects of many trace elements.
