New legislation implements requirements for donation bins
By WRCB Staff
A new law is holding donation bin operators accountable. A little more than a year ago a local non-profit reached out to Channel-3 to warn the public about some unexplainable unmarked donation boxes popping up across the Tennessee valley. Now a new law implements labeling and placement requirements for the bins. The public can also help with accountability. People can now snap a photo of any donation bin in Tennessee, and post it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag "#bincheck" as a way to report a bin in question to the division of charitable solicitations and gaming.
