It’s not a garbage bin

 Francine Evans goes through her regular routine of emptying the garbage out of the Bouffe Pontiac food bank donation bin at the Shawville Giant Tiger. “I’ve seen it where there’s food in it and they still throw garbage in it,” she said.

At least once per week, Giant Tiger supervisor Francine Evans has to empty the garbage left in the food donation bin for Bouffe Pontiac.
The blue food donation bin at Shawville’s Giant Tiger sits right beside the sliding doors that lead outside.
Much of the garbage is in the form of small pieces of plastic or receipts, but Evans said it still sends the wrong message.
“It actually stops people from putting food donations in it when they see garbage in it,” she said.
