Franchise Fees

At Bin There Dump That, a franchise territory is a set of well-defined zip codes.

When awarded a territory, the key phrase is “protected territory,” this means the area is for you and only you to market, promote and conduct business.

Franchise fees are calculated by population; we analyze the number of single-family homes located in the territory and median family income. These are essential considerations in creating a territory, and we work hard to ensure that every Bin There Dump That territory we award is dynamic and robust. We only succeed if each franchise operator succeeds.
