SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Stricter regulations for the charity drop boxes around South Bend were approved on Monday night.

The ordinance takes aim at out-of town owners, who have placed their drop boxes within city limits.

Some of the collections even benefit for-profit companies.

The new rules will require owners to empty the boxes at least once a week.

Additionally, the labeling on boxes must clearly state whether the organization is a non-profit.
It will cost organizations $25 to apply for a license for each drop box.

If there are issues, someone from the group must respond to complaints about the drop box within 12 hours.
