A cash recycler is a machine that accepts and dispenses cash through secure means. It keeps an accurate accounting of cash on hand and automates the cash cycle. In a cash recycler, banknotes are placed into a feeder and passed through a bill identifier to determine the denomination and validity of the banknotes. This cash is then stored in separate cassettes or modules for dispensing in future transactions.
