Major car rental company first to trial car litter bags

Enterprise Rent-a-Car announce they will help raise awareness of the Roadside Litter campaign, distributing car litter bags with rental vehicles at their Glasgow branch.

The car hire company will support us in keeping our roadsides clean by equipping their fleet at the Enterprise Rent-a-Car Glasgow branch with campaign branded car litter bags provided by paper bag manufacturers Smith Anderson with messaging reminding drivers to take their litter home. It is part of a broader effort to raise awareness of the problem of litter on our roadsides, with 50 tonnes of litter being abandoned on Scottish roadsides each month. These bags will provide customers with an easy way to responsibly dispose of their litter, and will help spread the message to ‘Give Your Litter a Lift, Take It Home’.

These car litter bags will handed out to customers at their Glasgow branch as they collect their hire vehicles. Customers will also be surveyed as part of the campaign’s monitoring drive. This will form part of a trial period, with the intention to roll out the initiative more widely in the near future. We welcome this pledge by Enterprise Rent-a-Car, especially at this time of the year when the nights draw darker and litter continues to blight Scottish roadsides.

Allyson Bennie, Head of Diversity/Career and Family Focus Group for Enterprise Scotland, commented:

“Enterprise Rent a Car are happy to be supporting Keep Scotland Beautiful in providing our customers with a litter bag in our cars. We all have a part to play in keeping Scotland's beautiful countryside free of litter and believe this great initiative will help achieve that.”
