Goodwill Partners with Ray Products to Create goBins

goBins are indoor donation containers designed to fit inside apartment building lobbies, urban commercial centers, hotels and office complexes.

To ramp up donation and household recycling efforts, Goodwill Industries has partnered with thermoformer Ray Products Co. Inc. to create goBins, a collection of indoor donation containers that are designed to fit inside apartment building lobbies, urban commercial centers, hotels and office complexes.

Some of the goBins are outfitted with a sensor inside to alert charities when bins are full and a QR code so that donors can scan the container to get an emailed receipt.

Plastics News has more details:

Goodwill Industries and thermoformer Ray Products Co. Inc. are taking charity donations into the 21st century.

The goBin indoor collection container is designed to go inside apartment building lobbies and office complexes where people already are, rather than forcing them to make an extra trip to donate household items.

Some of the goBins are also “smart” boxes, with a QR code on the side of the boxes that donors can scan to get an emailed receipt, and a sensor inside that alerts charities when the bins are full.
