We have the ability to lock our cars remotely with the touch of a button. We pre-program the security in our homes, offices, and public facilities on daily & weekly schedule. We place public safety at the forefront of our core values, securing venues during special events. Now, your Bigbelly Smart Waste stations do the same.
The latest addition to Bigbelly's suite of Smart Waste capabilities, the Remote Hopper Lock, allows CLEAN users to control access to their station's Hopper disposal. With the Remote Hopper Lock, program your Bigbelly fleet to lock and unlock on-schedule or using your station's sensing capabilities.
Unlocked when you want the public to toss their trash, locked when you don't!
