A Sustainable Approach To Collecting Post-Consumer Textile Waste

Sensoneo solutions find application even for companies dedicated to the collection of old clothes and other textile waste. With the evergrowing amount of clothes we buy and own thanks to fast fashion trends, also grows the amount of clothes we want to get rid off.

Companies such as Goodwill or Humana face increasing demand for its services and with growing networks of collection points, the everyday operations are getting more and more difficult.

Smart waste is mostly regarded as a topic for cities and municipalities. On the other hand, such companies (textile waste collectors) will need to introduce the same technologies as municipalities to manage the whole ecosystem of operators, drivers, collection points etc.

Among customers using Sensoneo solution, you can find companies specializing in the collection of a specific waste type such as electronics, oil or textile.
