GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police say the death of a man  whose body was found in a pile of cardboard boxes at a Grandville recycling center was accidental.

On Monday, workers at the Padnos Iron and Metal center on Viaduct St. SW found the body of Anthony Duane Wilson, 48, in a load of cardboard boxes. 

Police believed Wilson was picked up in a dumpster at some point along a recycling truck's route, which could be as many as 80 stops in the Grand Rapids, Grandville and Wyoming area.

The Kent County Medical Examiner's office performed an autopsy on Wilson's body Tuesday, and ruled his death as accidental.
