How it works

Give us Your Information

Start by letting us know the date you have selected for your Used Clothing Drive. We will confirm the date and send you an information packet. We will contact you to confirm the date and send an information packet. Next send out an email or flyer and post notices announcing your Used Clothing Drive. Once you've collected the used clothing, packed in tied plastic bags, we do the rest.

  1. We pick up what you've collected, on the scheduled day in our trucks. The bags will be weighed on our certified commercial scale and we pay you by the pound. The used clothing we bring to our warehouse is then prepared for shipment around the world. Now those in other countries get good, clean, useable clothing for pennies.
  2. A check will be sent to your organization. That's all it takes! All this means more money for your organization, more wearable clothing for people around the world and a lot less in our landfills!
