PORTAGE, MI - Portage may be the first community in Southwest Michigan to regulate collection or donation boxes. After a good deal of discussion the Portage City Council on Tuesday voted 5-1 to approve a collection box ordinance amendment that will regulate the 25 or so for-profit and non-profit collection boxes around town that take donations of everything from clothing to books.
