Here’s How to Report Those Suspicious Pink Donation Boxes for Removal
So, judging by a recent city statute, the onslaught of those ubiquitous pink donation boxes on the Lower East Side is most likely illegal. Regardless of who will benefit from the charity. According to the Department of Sanitation website, “Under Local Law No. 31 of 2007, the placement of publicly accessible collection bins on New York City property or property maintained by New York City, or on any public sidewalk or roadway is illegal.”
We still can’t get through to anyone at “Our Neighborhood Recycling” for confirmation on the beneficiaries of donations collected. In the meantime, you can visit the Department of Sanitation website to report and/or request bin removals. They’re seriously on every corner in the 10002.
