SULO Access control system helps you to record and communicate the usage data of your containers

Our Access control system was first developed for the SULO underground and semi-underground systems ICEBERG and ICEBERG SEMI. lt is based on the statement that SULO has the capacity to create value in our waste disposal, with a control of for what, when, and by who voluntary deposit conatiners are used. Our meaning is to create an intelligent container, which can generate valuable datas to manage the collect,and improve the way we consume.


Our system is composed by a smart chip card with an electronic system, a box resistant to extreme conditions and a locker tested against vandalism and high pressure. You will able to grant access to adapted people or group of people by giving them a badge adapted to our contactless system, to record the use of your products, and to identify which one need maintenance.


Using a smart chip card with RFID technology, you are able to open the drum or flap of the SULO containers for one disposal or more based on the credit granted.

The chip card communicates with the RFID chip reader installed on the underground system. The specific user data is stored and can be used as the basis for usage-based invoicing, statistics or waste collection optimization.

The datas are send many times per day

The daily data of the usage is sent by GPRS in order to be consulted via the dedicated software. As soon as the container is full, it is locked until emptying. This effectively prevents overfilling which can be a problem for the collection. Access to the recycling systems can be remotely approved or rejected via the dedicated software.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Control the authorization remotely at the click of a mouse
  • Authorize or refuse access to the containers from a distance
  • Daily update on the use data of your containers
  • Control your waste flow
  • Optimize waste collection
  • Control your costs
  • Preventing unauthorized use
  • Usage-based individual invoicing
  • Intelligent chip card incl. RFID transponder and reading device on the underground system
  • Prevention of overfilling
  • A first step towards the “pay-as-you-throw” system

Efficient waste management must be based on integrated planning and controls. Only an integrated hardware and software system which includes, manages and optimises all aspects of waste will meet the demands of the future: avoidance of waste, reduction of costs, fair fees, environmental sustainability.

As a pioneer in modern waste management, SULO has developed an intelligent hardware system with accompanying software to be able to serve the various requirements with a system. We enable our customers to organise the complete disposal process from container distribution and identification through fleet and route management to consumption-related and statutory fee invoicing on a single platform.

The software can be accessed via the internet or locally. It links all bin, weight, trip and invoicing data in a system. The resulting analysis and statistic evaluations enable you to plan adjustments to future challenges with utmost precision. It goes without saying that all data is consistently updated and every authorised team member can access it at any time and at various workstations.

Geolocation and data collection with on-board vehicle hardware

SULO provides equipment adapted to the waste collection with a technical system to recognize and record which bin is collected and his weight. We have an onboard vehicle hardware to localize the truck, collect data and transfer them to our system.

Data recording via integrated truck hardware creates a new dimension in transparency and waste collection optimization. You receive precise trip data and document the emptying processes. This is a milestone in making the efficiency of waste disposal measurable and to be able to make lasting improvements. The database also enables the real-time readout of collection and the management of your fleet via SULO software.

The identification module which reads the RFID chip of the bin, is fitted to the rear of the waste collection truck and automatically records all data during collection. The data can be consulted in real-time or by history. There are currently around 2500 vehicles equipped with this proven SULO system around the world. The process of bin identification is linked with the weighing system technology such that the waste quantity of each bin is traceably registered and can be used as the basis for automated invoicing of each household. The module in the vehicle’s cab is the interface for compiling of GPS data, depicting the routes and to fleet management.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Automatic readout of the RFID chip in the bin using the module at the rear of the truck
  • Real-time monitoring of your waste collection vehicles activity : waste collection process, geolocation
  • Collect event during the collection tour (damaged bins which needed maintenance, event on the road, etc)
  • Valid trip data and documentation of the emptying procedures
  • Data for pay-as-you-throw invoicing by linking to the weighing system technology
  • Securing data by transferring them to a secure platform – Have a secure platform to transfer data
  • Management of collection data

Bin identification through RFID Chip

Efficient waste management starts with a bin being clearly identified. The proven RFID transponder technology by SULO provides the perfect preconditions for this and solution for it. With 10 million units installed around the world, it is one of the ground­ breaking and most used solution on the market. The chip is concealed in the bin’s DIN comb in a protected place and make the link with all the information registered and stored in your database of user. In this way, it enables reliable information by the SULO identification and weighing system or by a mobile handheld reader. SULO manufactures and provides all kind of normalized RFID solutions with various frequencies based on your needs and requirements (Chips, stickers etc…)

Being equipped with the RFID transponder chip lays the basis for precise recognition of each waste bin in your community, including all emptying data. Each bin has a globally unique ID number related to a location. The knowledge of data, time and GPS position of the emptying prevents illicit emptying and allows you to receive precise information for your usage-based invoicing.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Simple installation and resistance to heavy duty conditions
  • Full range of RFID chip and solutions (frequency, type)
  • Globally unique ID number linked to a location or a citizen
  • Compliance with the latest certifications
  • Readouts by a handheld device or identification reader installed on the truck
  • Prevents emptying of non-registered bins
  • A first step to the “pay-as-you-throw” system
