WINDSOR, ONT. -- The City of Windsor is hoping to clean up charitable drop-off locations.
Some of the issues include not enough information on the bins, dumping and some boxes being for-profit businesses from out of town.
Administration presented four options to council on how to improve the issue.
Licensing, a standalone bylaw, amending the current bylaw or keep the status quo.
Ward 3 councillor Rino Bortolin tells CTV News the measures are not meant to penalize the charities.
"I think there's a responsibility to the neighbourhood that they're in to make sure that their well-kept and that they don't add to any negative or blight image of the neighbourhood,” says Bortolin.
Bortolin expects the item to be addressed at the next council meeting.
