Introducing Bigbelly ACS: The First Comprehensive Access Control System for Smart Waste!

Posted by Bigbelly on 10/15/20 10:04 AM

The IoT age leaves no room for unauthorized access, lack of workforce oversight, lost keys or broken locks. And now, neither do we.

Bigbelly is launching the latest evolution in smart waste technology: the Bigbelly Access Control System, affectionately known as "ACS."  Bigbelly ACS is a comprehensive, cloud-based Access Control System for the Bigbelly smart waste solution and your workforce, providing unprecedented visibility & fleet management capabilities. 

Now access your Bigbelly stations with just a tap of a unique key card!  No metal keys, no cylinder locks, and the addition of better operational insights.

COMPREHENSIVE & CLOUD-driven, Right at your Fingertips

Think of a hotel key card management solution. Bigbelly now integrates this level of Access Control into Smart Waste deployments, all within your CLEAN Management Software. The Bigbelly Access Control System is entirely cloud-based, secure, responsive, and provides real-time data in all realms of access.  Administrators leave nothing to chance, as they have complete control over who has access, and to which stations.

Management, Visibility, & Security - The Core Tenets of Bigbelly ACS.

  • Security: Eliminate issues with lost or stolen keys. Unauthorized door openings and vandalized lock cylinders are a thing of the past.

Anatomy of ACS - Bigbelly Station Hardware

Bigbelly ACS makes traditional metal key locks obsolete!  ACS hardware integrates directly into your Bigbelly station’s electronics and is controlled through Bigbelly’s CLEAN Management Console - no third-party system required!

Complete access control - Not a Simple Electronic Lock


Bigbelly ACS is far more than a simple electronic locking system. Single-function electronic locks employ only RFID access devices, without a robust management or analytics system behind them.  To understand a bit more about the differences, dare to compare!
