Clothing Drop-Box Locations

This dataset provides information on the location and operators of permitted clothing drop boxes.

The Clothing Drop Box by-law ensures that the public is aware of where used clothing donations are going, creates a registry of clothing box owners, and deters litter and unsightly views for residents.

Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 395, "Clothing Drop Boxes", requires that all clothing drop box operators obtain a location permit for each box. All operators, including charitable organizations, must display the permit sticker on the box.
