One such illegal container just appeared in front of an empty lot on Hoyt Street between Second Street and Third Street. Neighbors asked the owner of the lot if she had given permission to have it placed there, but she assured them that she knew nothing about it.
Meanwhile, the residents of the adjacent homes have called in complaints and have posted a flier on the pink box to let others know that it is illegal.
If you see a random box without clear markings indicating what legal organization it belongs to, please assume that it is a scam. In the meantime, you can bring your used clothing to the Greenmarket at Carroll Street on Sunday mornings.
