‘Charity’ Donation Bins Proliferating on New York Sidewalks – Philanthropy Today - Blogs - The Chronicle of Philanthropy: A growing number of private companies are illegally placing putatively charitable used-clothing bins on sidewalks in New York City, mirroring a national trend that is raising concerns among nonprofits that legitimately collect secondhand items, according to The New York Times.
New York City bans such bins on public streets and sidewalks, although they are allowed on private property with the owner’s consent. In the fiscal year that ended June 30, the city tagged more than 2,000 illegally sited bins and confiscated 132, compared to 91 tags and 10 confiscations four years ago.
