In addition to the five deaths in B.C, a 32-year-old man was discovered dead inside a donation box in Cambridge, Ont., last November and a man in his 20s died in a similar container in Calgary in July 2017.

He said the designs feature metal bars that create a "pinch point" when activated, often by people trying to get into the boxes.

Loretta Sundstrom, whose 45-year-old daughter died in 2015 after getting stuck in a bin, told CBC Radio's World Report last week that she cried at news of the man's death in West Vancouver.

Following the man's death, West Vancouver closed all of its bins.

Residents living in the area told Canadian TV station CP24that it is not unusual for women from local homeless shelters to attempt to grab things from the charity donation bins.

A Burnaby man was found in a donation bin just a day after the city announced its plans to remove them from city streets.

"We'll keep them off of public property until such time as safety modifications can be made to ensure that we don't have the type of situations that have happened elsewhere".

"We are continuing to allow those bins because that site is fully staffed and after hours they are locked up and secure", he said, adding that the city bins are the "mailbox" style and considered a bit safer.

The death was ruled not suspicious and is not being investigated as a crime, the spokesperson said, declining to release details on how the woman ended up inside the bin. City Manager Lambert Chu said it's only until a safer option can be provided. He said the locks would have to be robust, however, so they couldn't be opened with a crow bar. In the Fall, he tasked his first-year engineer students to design a new donation bin that would prevent people from crawling inside.

The rotating top can only be moved in one direction because it uses a ratchet system so potential thieves would not be able to see earlier donations or the contents inside the bin.
