Clothes Bin has developed a proven process for the collection, management and distribution of clothes, shoes and textiles throughout the United States. Strategically located in the parking lots of convenience stores, gas stations, shopping centers or wherever people congregate, these bright green bins are destined to become the go-to for anyone looking for a convenient way to recycle their clothes, shoes and textiles.

FEATURES OF BUSINESS
Clothes Bin® is a part-time and semi-absentee franchise opportunity that works full-time:
  • The Bin® is your hardest working employee. They work 24/7/365 without overtime pay and they never call in sick. For them, HR stands for “Happily Recycling.”
  • Getting started is easy. No build-out, construction inspections or soft openings to worry about. Your bins are ready to get to work the moment you place them in the field and if the location isn’t working for you, you simply relocate the bin to another location. It’s that simple.
  • Rain or shine, day and night your bins are working for you. BLIP® will monitor each bin and tell you when they need to be serviced. Our unique system will even layout the most efficient collection route.
  • Simple to manage. Unlike many other franchise opportunities, Clothes Bin® franchisees never have to worry about food costs, spoilage or ongoing inventory management and holding costs.

Description of territory -Protected Territory includes a minimum of 350+ gas stations/convenience stores in areas with a median income of $35,000+, but is not limited to only these locations or types of locations. May also place at organizations, schools, religious organizations, shopping plazas and other types of locations with permission.

Recession Resistant
  • As the economy suffers, more people shop at second hand stores, which increases the demand for the contributed clothes, shoes and textiles. When the economy is improving the contributions increase as people buy more new clothes, shoes and textiles.
  • People are always looking for quality goods at a discounted price.
Issues and Ambushes
  • Since we are the first company to introduce textile recycling to the franchise industry, we have to educate people about the opportunity to recycle the 17 billion pounds of clothes, shoes and textiles that end up in local landfills each year.
  • Charities: Are we taking away from charities: “No, in our experience people will seek out their favorite charity because they believe in their cause, and can continue to call them for home pickups, or will drop off to their locations. Charities offer tax receipts, but Clothes Bin franchise does not. All of the charities, for-profits and non-profits combined only recycle 15% of textiles, while 85% still end up in landfills.”
    • We offer a convenient way for people to recycle their textiles in high-traffic and visible locations.
    • We are a recycling company helping the environment and reducing the unnecessary dumping of textiles into local landfills
    • We take all clothing and textiles. We do not discriminate based on quality, brands, condition.
    • We have clear contact information with very well constructed and aesthetically pleasing bins which are regularly serviced and have permission to be in their assigned locations.
