The city of Simi Valley will consider whether to ban certain unattended donation bins.

The city council was scheduled to consider introducing an ordinance to eliminate so-called "satellite bins" at a Monday night meeting.

City official say they see more and more of them and the bins can become overflowing eyesores.

The donation bins could still stand in or outside nonprofit facilities, and bins for recyclable items would be permitted.
