Donations made to the green bins, operated by a group known as the Gaia-Movement, may be misleading.
A report by CBS 13 News found the donations made to these bins may be going toward a profitable company. They are multiplying across Sacramento, and that has not pleased many local officials. Councilmember Sandy Sheedy feels the bins do nothing but bring blight to the area; CBS 13’s Steve Large, reporting from Del Paso Heights, found nothing but trash in one bin.
The City’s Law and Legislation Committee is looking into the issue of Unattended Donation Boxes at today’s 3pm meeting.
