CASH RECYCLERS - Making A Positive Impact on the Environment & the Bottom Line

Cash recyclers offer many tangible benefits, including increased productivity, additional controls, reduced vault trips, and more accurate balances. Whether behind the teller line or in a recycling ATM, ultimately, these systems make it easier for financial institutions to:

  • Reduce inefficiencies – The start and end-of-day cash-handling procedures represent the valuable time the FI staff could be spending assisting customers, making sales, or allocating elsewhere.

  • Reduce idle cash - Utilizing cash recyclers means FIs can better judge how much cash should be sold or ordered, can substantially reduce the frequency of CIT pickups, and associated fees.

  • Deploy multiple denominations - By deploying recycling ATMs, FI’s can utilize the high number of $20 bills that are most often deposited, while allocating other cassettes for smaller or larger denominations.

While these are easy to quantify, cash recyclers also provide intangible perks reinforcing a financial institution’s commitment to environmental sustainability.


For today’s customers, a commitment to environmental sustainability is increasingly important, and many FI's have publicly committed to being carbon neutral soon. To do so, FI's understand this commitment will require a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as well as energy usage. 

  • Reduce CIT pickups - With a cash recycler system in place, FI’s can reuse the cash collected by the machine throughout the day, reducing the frequency of cash-in-transit pickups needed.

  • Eliminate Co2 - Reducing CIT trips from weekly to monthly (assuming an average of 15 miles driven per trip) equates to removing nearly two metric tons of CO2 annually^^. This is the equivalent of:
