The printing of ATM receipts not only wastes paper but also creates a litter problem.
There are more than 1,400 ATM machine locations in Singapore provided by the three local banks (DBS/POSB, UOB and OCBC). If there are ten people printing receipts from each ATM machine daily, we would end up with more than five million paper receipts annually.
This is not taking into account the fact that there are more than one ATM machine at each location and that there are more than five other banks with ATM machines. Imagine the paper wasted if we take all these into account.
In addition, the paper receipts are often found as litter around the ATM machines. So, choose not to print receipts and check your bank account online or update your bank book regularly to ensure that there is no discrepancy.
