The non-profit clothing bank and donation bin operator Goodwill Industries of Kanawha Valley, Inc.was challenged by lost donations due to overflowing clothing banks.

In addition, many clothing banks were being serviced too early, resulting in unnecessary expenses and resources. They wanted a more efficient approach to their operations. The organization installed smart sensors in their containers and quickly began optimizing their collection routes.

The Nordsensen solution has helped Goodwill to:
- Expand their program with more donation bins, enabling more textile recycling
- Achieve their best month in donation collection (which is key for their revenue)
- Improve resource efficiency
