Deceptive donation bin operator getting sued by AG Schuette

Deceptive donation bins

LANSING, MICH. - Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a lawsuit against the clothing donation bin operator American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS), Inc. for using deceptive wording.

According to a news release from Schuette's office, ATRS, Inc. has bins located throughout Michigan, including Lansing, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and the surrounding areas.

The donation bins state that the Michigan Humane Society "receives 100% of the market value of every donation received." However, ATRS pays Michigan Humane Society just 6%. Michigan law requires that all charitable solicitations to be truthful.
