Donation Bins - For Profit Business

Any person who is not a charitable organization and who places or maintains a collection receptacle (donation bin) in public view for the purpose of collecting donated clothing, household items, or similar goods, for resale for the purpose of retaining the proceeds of the sale of the items, shall clearly and conspicuously display on two (2) sides including the front, of each collection receptacle (donation bin) a permanent sign or label with the person’s name, address, phone number, electronic mail address, and the following statement:

THIS IS NOT A CHARITY.  DONATIONS MADE HERE WILL BE SOLD BY A FOR-PROFIT BUSINESS AND ARE NOT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

The sign or labels with the required information should be at least two inches (2”) in height or as large as the largest letter on the box, whichever is greater, and in a color that contrasts with the color of the collection receptacle (donation bin) so that the sign or label is clearly visible.

Anyone who operates a donation bin must obtain written notarize permission from the property owner or all leaseholders.  More information can be obtained HERE.
