Franchising is widely considered one of the best business opportunities for veterans. Not only are franchises great for first-time business owners, but they also allow for flexible scheduling and don’t require any prior sales experience. Clothes Bin® is a recycling franchise that offers a fantastic opportunity for first-time business owners. If you’re a veteran with an entrepreneurial dream, this could be a promising way to own and operate your own business.

How Clothes Bin® Works

According to the EPA, 85% of textile waste ends up in landfills, creating 17 billion pounds of waste. Over time, it produces greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change. Clothes Bin®, the first and only textile recycling franchise, addresses this issue. Here’s how it works. Bins are placed in convenient locations in your community, such as schools, gas stations, and parking lots.

Residents, instead of throwing out clothes and shoes, can place their contributions in Bin, which are independently owned by franchisees. In addition, each Bin is equipped with BLIP®— which monitors them and alerts the franchisee whenever one approaches its capacity and needs to be serviced. The contributions can be sold to local buyers, second-hand/thrift stores or a National Buyer Program.

It’s a semi-absentee franchise model that promotes environmental stewardship, and provides a source of clothes, shoes and textiles in the United States and throughout the world.

Why Clothes Bin® is a Great Opportunity for Veterans

A Clothes Bin® franchise appeals to many veterans because it allows for a flexible schedule– you can easily own and run your own franchise even if you already have a full-time job. The Bins are constantly working for you– you do not have to sort through any of the clothes and shoes yourself. Many veterans also enjoy the feeling that they are doing their part for the environment. Not only will you have the chance to own your own business, but you’ll also be helping out your community.

Clothes Bin also offers special discounts and financing opportunities for veterans to help them get started on their entrepreneurial journey. Finally, it’s an excellent opportunity to utilize the skills learned in the military—teamwork, self-sufficiency, and leadership.
