The victim has been identified by friends and staff at local women's shelter Sistering as Crystal Papineau. "She was complicated but she was a lovely woman".

"We're all just devastated".

"If someone is going to go into your bin and take your product, that's going to have to be how it is for now".

It has been suggested that the design of the bins is responsible for the people becoming trapped inside.

As the majority of these incidents occur at night, Taheri said there is the possibility of installing a locking system that would engage after dark.

The recent deaths of two people who became trapped inside clothing donation bins in British Columbia and Ontario have raised questions about the designs of these boxes and if there is a way to make them safer.

The circumstances that led to her being inside the donation box are unknown at this time.

Paramedics confirmed that they had been called to the area of Dovercourt Rd. and Bloor St. shortly after 1:30 a.m., and that the woman was pronounced dead at the scene sometime later.

Police said they believed the woman's death does not appear suspicious and was likely accidental.

The location of the boxes.

'They're set up in a way to make it hard to have access to the box, to the inside of the box, but obviously not safe enough'.

He expects the review won't take long, but did not indicate a specific timeline for completion and recommendations to be acted upon.

It is not the first time someone has died after being trapped in a clothes donation box in Canada. "We are in direct communication with police on this matter".

There have been at least eight deaths related to people attempting to get inside donation bins in Canada since 2015.

In total, five deaths have been reported in British Columbia over the last four years.

He estimates it would cost almost $1 million to remove the approximately 2,000 donation bins in B.C. alone.

Meanwhile, the city of Burnaby - east of Vancouver - has asked all not-for-profit companies in the city to remove their bins located on private property, the Vancouver Sun reports.

Vancouver Fire Rescue's Jonathan Gormick explains how the bin's design can be inescapable. While those bars do not exist on all styles of donation box, Agro said the company is focused on improving safety in all styles it produces.

"Shut them all down", she said.

"They get stuck there".
