Learn about the journey Republic Services is taking to mitigate payment acceptance costs.  Due to increasing costs, we needed to understand the cost drivers by payment channel and payment method.  Our goal was to develop and evaluate potential solutions for implementation. The session discusses our journey’s progression and unexpected turns along the way. 


Our solutions were developed around 3 categories: influencing behavior of our field staff, influencing customer behavior, and implementing corporate-level measures.  As with all corporates, we faced internal constraints and external factors beyond our control.  The session will discuss solutions we implemented, some that we didn’t, and more that are in progress.

Presenters:   Patti Ritter and Jeff Morley
