Abstract

The aim of the present study was to determine paper waste production from automated teller machine (ATM) banking systems of Kermanshah City, Iran. Based on interviews and checklists, data collection was performed and analyzed thorough the employment of Excel software. The weight of wasted paper was determined by transaction rate and by the average weight of ATM received paper. According to results, it can be concluded that the Meli and Ansar banks have the highest paper waste production weight, at 225 and 188.5 g, respectively. Average paper production weight was 76.5 g for each ATM system per day. Also, the higher transaction rates were observed at the end and the first days of week /month and, higher amounts of the paper production rate were in February, March and April.
