What About Airports Reselling Your Things?

I read about airports reselling all the stuff people had to leave behind to get on an airplane, like knives and tools. Isn't that stealing? Shouldn't travellers be compensated for their snatched belongings? Why is it okay for someone to make money from my property?

Persons who had left such materials, can collect back those materials on return journey by producing the copy of the ticket/boarding pass. I have done it 2 times.

I thought they had you throw it away or mail it home.
