VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Clothing donations bins are being allowed back into Vancouver, with some conditions.
The bins were banned in Vancouver and some other local municipalities after a number of deaths caused by people getting stuck inside. Now, Vancouver city council has set some criteria to ensure they don’t pose any risks.
That includes requiring operators to have a business licence and written certification from a professional engineer stating the construction, design and operation of the donation bin is safe.
They also have to ensure they are kept tidy and safe through regularly scheduled maintenance.
