Public consultation on Clothing Drop Boxes Bylaw – February 28, 2019

Posted on February 21, 2019

The City of Toronto is undertaking a review of the Clothing Drop Boxes Bylaw and wants to hear from residents. The aim of the review is to discuss potential improvements to the bylaw to ensure that clothing drop boxes remain safe and maintained.

The public is invited to attend a consultation on Thursday, February 28 from 6 to 8 p.m., in Committee Room 3, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Feedback may also be sent by email to

Clothing drop boxes play an important role in the city, helping to divert items from landfill and raise money for charity. Under the current bylaw, clothing drop box operators who are not registered as a charitable or not-for-profit organization are required to obtain a clothing drop box licence. Additionally, all clothing drop boxes must display a permit. The City has issued close to 500 clothing drop box permits. A maximum of two clothing drop boxes are allowed per location.

Feedback from this consultation will be used to inform a report to General Government and Licensing Committee in the second quarter of 2019.
