Dear Forum readers,

Photo of Alicia MoorePlease welcome our newest guest blogger Alicia Moore. Alicia is a senior vice president and head of Wells Fargo ATM Banking and joined the ATM Banking group in 2000. Under Alicia’s leadership, Wells Fargo has accomplished many “first’s,” including:  being the first large bank to have all web-enabled ATMs, the first bank to have a ‘talking’ capability at all sites, and the first bank to deploy bulk check deposit ATMs. (SR)

In my building in San Francisco, there are no traditional garbage cans. We have a bin for recycling, compost and landfill. We believe our everyday actions can make a difference.

Today we’d like to say thank you to our customers as we hit the milestone of more than one billion paperless transactions at our ATMs. Since 2009, you’ve opted to get your receipt via email or text, or selected no receipt at all – that’s equivalent to saving more than 300 million feet of receipt paper, which could circle the Earth’s circumference more than two times (approximately 63,000 miles).


We’re proud to support our customers’ green choices by making it easier than ever to minimize waste. Thank you for being part of this journey. We look forward to more milestones in the future.
