Planet Aid collection bin
Our steel collection bins are custom made and are designed for safe and easy use. They feature a large security chute at the front, similar to that used for a mailbox. Clothing bags and loose items go into the chute, but it is impossible for others to reach in and remove them. We know that having a secure collection bin is a key functional quality. Simple donation instructions are painted onto the front plate of the security chute.
The bins have approximately a 4 x 4 footprint and stand 7 feet tall, roughly the size of a soda machine. Planet Aid carries liability insurance to cover the bins. Our insurance agent will issue a liability insurance certificate should you request it.
