Uncollected donations prompts Davenport Hy-Vee to move clothes recycling bins

DAVENPORT, Iowa — Two donation bins for clothes and shoes were moved after they were overflowing with items.

The Operation Green drop boxes are located in the northwest corner of a parking lot leased by Hy-Vee Food Store near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and East Kimberly Road. Hy-Vee decided on Monday, September 19, 2016 to box up the items and move the bins until they can get in touch with Operation Green.

Overflowing donation bins set up near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and East Kimberly Road in Davenport, Iowa.

There is a number listed on the outside of the Operation Green drop boxes.   WQAD News 8 called the company to ask what the plan was for picking up the items in the bins, but our calls went unanswered.

Another Operation Green drop-off is located in the parking lot of Michael's Arts & Crafts at 4010 East 53rd Street. That location is not overflowing with items, but the bins are full.
