The battle between nonprofit and for-profit clothing donation bins resurfaces in Detroit, where St. Vincent de Paul alleges foul play by TX clothing recycler.
"The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Detroit claims a Texas clothing recycler hasn’t been very, well, charitable. The nonprofit that collects clothing and other goods for people in need said the Texas company, American Textile Recycling Services, has been running a scheme to remove St. Vincent de Paul’s donation bins from shopping centers and other locations around metro Detroit and replace them with bins owned by ATRS." -- Eric D. Lawrence, the Detroit Free Press
