Create Savings and Generate Revenue by
Reducing Waste


Implementing a Trash Metering program from WasteZero provides both revenue and savings opportunities for municipalities. Consider the savings opportunities first. The bottom line is:  When trash is reduced, all of the related costs to manage that trash are also reduced. Specifically, savings can be achieved through:

  • Reduced tipping fees
  • Decreased out-of-region shipping fees
  • Fewer trash trucks and/or drivers needed for curbside pickup
  • Fewer resources needed at the transfer station

In addition, the revenue achieved through the sale of municipality-branded trash bags to residents provides a much-needed financial injection to cities and towns. Municipalities can choose to share these revenues with residents - with what is called our More In Return™ program, or put the money back into vital services for the community.


“Before PAYT, trash tonnage in [one MA city] averaged 21,000 tons annually. Since the program started, the tonnage has been cut in half, to about 10,000 tons. The city is saving more than $800,000 annually in disposal fees.” American City & County

“Maybe it’s the wallet talking or maybe the switch raised everyone’s awareness, but the move by [one MA town] to Pay-As-You-Throw trash program has had a remarkable effect on the town’s budget and the environment.” Wicked Local
