Council member wants to bring back sidewalk clothing bins
From CBS 2:
Sanchez said the Eddie Bauer winter gear was found discarded outside the 5th Avenue store on Sunday night. She wanted to know why the store would ruin the men’s merchandise so it couldn’t be worn when it could have done so much good.
“This is not a singular incident,” councilman Rafael Espinal said.
Espinal is working on a bill to fine companies that deliberately destroy and dump clothing.
“Incentivize the donation of clothing by creating bins to place in front of retail stores,” he said.
Didn't we just spend years trying to get rid of clothing bins on sidewalks?
