About Us

How It Works

  Organizations choose to participate in the program as a fundraiser.  There is no cost to the organization. The clothing banks, the collection of the clothing, the processing and the distribution of the clothing are 100% paid for by Big Mouth Bin.  The clothing banks carry the logo/name of the organization and the charities are paid monthly on a per pound basis for the clothing/textiles collected.  All responsibility for clothing bank capital cost, maintenance, decaling and collection is borne by Big Mouth Bin. 

Who It Benefits

 The benefits extend from the donor who discards what they no longer want, the site sponsor who is happy to be sponsoring an organization they support and facilitating a service for their customers, and the local charitable organizations who receive much needed funding and name recognition for their organization. 

 The employees of Big Mouth Bin  benefit, as do their suppliers and customers, ultimately the environment benefits from our complete recycling process that ensures zero textile waste and all the employment and processing remains in Canada. 

But the real winners are the children, teenagers, adults and families who access the many programs offered by the organizations,  many of whom  have built up programs dependant on Big Mouth Bin  funding.  

Why It Works

  Fundraising is a costly business for organizations.  It costs money and time to raise money, and   requires the co-ordination of a team to come up with a plan and execute it. 100% of the money raised by Big Mouth Bin  from its clothing collection bins can be spent on programs.  

Big Mouth Bin  specializes in the collection and recycling of textiles and generates substantial amounts of funding on an ongoing basis and at no cost for charitable organisations, so that the charitable organisations can concentrate on what they do best.  

This is a programme with no end date.  Time and energy spent on sourcing new streams of revenue are freed up so organizations can get on with helping the community.
