Textile theft solution

Re-thinking textile bank security

Textiles theft cost collectors thousands every year!

Charity Textile banks are an excellent means of recycling, reusing and donating to a good cause. Sadly the textile collection industry suffers from organised and repeatable theft of textiles on a global scale. Thousands of tons of the public’s donations are stolen from textile banks every year.

Monitoring the fill level of textile banks around the world with netBin has highlighted the scale of the problem, theft from banks has become more sophisticated to enable repeated access without detection by collectors.

To compliment our existing textile bin monitoring solution FarSite has been rethinking the way that textile bank security is approached and has developed a solution to combat the problem.
