Green city clothes collection bin

A green city clothes collection bin just appeared in the corner of my street. Anyone knows how these bins are distributed and how I can request its removal? I don't want to sound indifferent to the good they may be doing. I donate regularly to brown elephant and Salvation Army which are both a few blocks away, but we have a rat problem already and I don't see that this is helping. Any ideas anyone ?
