Licenses will be good from a period of May 1 through April 30 of the next year, officials said. The fee for a license now will be $100 per 30 days instead of $100 per year, and if the village has to impound an box that hasn't been maintained, the owner must pay $100 to get it back and could face additional fines.

Trustee Therese Schuepfer said there have been instances when outdoor drop-off boxes were placed on both private and public property without permission. The new rules require charities to get written consent from the property owner before the box is set up.

Another part of the revised ordinance holds charities responsible for maintaining the boxes in good condition by removing rust,retro new jordans.com, graffiti and peeling paint and picking up donations regularly to stop bins from overflowing.

"Several of the boxes (in Harwood Heights) were not maintained, and boxes,cheap real jordans, clothing and furniture piled up around the box,cheap jordan shoes," Schuepfer said. "It is our hope that the amendment to the ordinance will provide for a more organized collection process for these groups."

The Salvation Army �� which has drop-off boxes throughout the Chicago area �� said it's not investing more resources in its drop-off box program after the boxes have been hit by crime, according to Major John Aren,cheap jordans online, administrator of adult rehabilitation centers and family stores for The Salvation Army's central territory.

Boxes set up in crime-laden areas of Chicago, such as the corner of Halsted and Division streets, have been targeted, Aren said, adding that boxes in the suburbs are also at risk.

"More and more, we have boxes in Chicagoland that are despicable, and they ruin neighborhoods. So I understand everyone's concern with wanting to enforce these laws," Aren said. "The Salvation Army has abandoned the expansion of drop boxes because of the amount of damage they've incurred."

Aside from graffiti and theft, Aren said another common problem is that people break the locking mechanisms and enter the boxes to use as a place to sleep.

"People will do anything to open those boxes, and because the opening has to be large enough to fit a large garbage bag for donations,cheap retro jordans, a person can fit into the opening,cheap jordans," he said. "People will sometimes put their kids in the boxes and then go back and fish them out."

Aren said he's written letters to Chicago aldermen to try to get them to address the misuse of the boxes, but he hasn't heard back.

The Salvation Army is in dire need of donations, Aren said. He urged people to bring items to any of the charity's in-person drop-off locations where they'll receive a tax receipt. A list of Salvation Army locations is available at 800-728-7825 or SATruck.org.

"We're in desperate need of items that can be turned around and sold quickly," Aren said. "We'll be absolutely hurting in January and February because it's the bleak mid-winter period when no one's coming out of the house to bring in donations."
