This system allows the front load container lids to be secured with a lock without the lock having to be removed for our trucks to provide service.

The automatic container lock feature will:

  • Keep animals out of your container
  • Provide an overall cleaner environment
  • Prevent illegal dumping
  • Reduce your level of service
  • Reduce your liability

A locked container conveys the message that unauthorized dumping is prohibited. Keeping children, scavengers, and homeless people out reduces the potential of injury.

Businesses are being advised to watch what they throw away and secure their trash due to the increase in identity theft. A breach of information can have long reaching effects for your business and possibly your customers, vendors, suppliers, and employees. Misuse or loss of information is a major concern of the consumer base.

To use you will put a padlock on the front of the automatic lock. This will keep the container locked while it is on the ground. To open the container, remove the padlock and rotate the manual release lever, this pulls the lock bar back and opens the lid. Reverse these instructions to close the container.

If you are a First Piedmont customer, contact us if you are interested in adding this feature to your container.
