February 6th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) In an effort to save 20 tons paper per year, the Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA) will soon stop sending paper bills to its 600,000 customers in the country.
The institution said that customers could check their bills online or request a printed bill at AyA offices.
According to AyA official, Sergio Nunez the transition is being applied gradually, so many customers will continue to receive a paper bill for some time. However, the institution plans to be completely paperless by November.
Nunez said the transition has already begun and some customers have not been receiving paper bills since December.
Besides saving paper, the institution says it will save ¢20 million annually by going paperless.
