Giving Back to Residents with More In Return™
One of the greatest hurdles with a traditional pay-as-you-throw
program is that residents may see the price they are paying for the
special imprinted trash bags as a tax or one more thing they have
to pay for. But it doesn't have to be that way.
WasteZero has designed a unique program - called More in
Return™ - where our partner cities and towns actually "give
back" to residents some or all of the revenue generated from the
sale of the town's customized imprinted trash bags.
Eligible Resident List Determined
The municipality shares a list of eligible residents with WasteZero to begin to communicate the program.
At the end of year one, the funds – based on the revenues generated from the sale of WasteZero Trash Metering™ bags – are calculated, and the amount due to each household is determined.
Pre-Paid Cards Distributed to Eligible Households
WasteZero and the municipality work together to distribute debit cards to eligible households.
Program Information Available to Residents
A community-specific web page will be set up for residents to check the progress of their program, as well as provide a support process for questions, issues, and inquiries.
This unique program, offered only by WasteZero, provides
unmatched flexibility to cities and towns implementing a
next-generation pay-as-you-throw program. As a WasteZero Trash
Metering™ partner community with More in Return™, you can use the
savings and revenue generated from your program to support your
local schools, maintain roads and parks, fund emergency services,
or share with residents. It's up to you and the needs of your
