Why Open a Clothes Bin® Franchise
Clothes Bin® is a national franchise system made up of franchisees who own protected territories and operate clothing recycling Bins.
We provide our franchisees with the tools they need to grow their business. Our strong support system includes a sophisticated Bin Location Information Program (BLIP®) and our National Buyer Program to help owners sell the collected goods.
Join the Growing, GREEN Clothing Recycling Industry
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 15% of clothing waste is recycled annually. The remaining 85% ends up in landfills—equating to 17 billion pounds of unnecessary clothing waste each year. Over time, clothing waste in landfills produces greenhouse gases, which ultimately contributes to climate change.
The consensus is clear: a green initiative is required to reduce clothing waste. As the first and only clothing recycling franchise, Clothes Bin® strives to offer convenient ways for communities to recycle clothes and shoes. The public demand for environmentally friendly solutions has never been greater, and the recycled clothing industry as an avenue for entrepreneurship has remained relatively untapped— until now.
