TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - Discount Car & Truck Rentals, launched their new corporate sustainability program with an e-waste collection day at their head office in Toronto in an effort to increase employee awareness of the dangers of electronic waste and to encourage recycling.  "This is one of many initiatives we have planned on our journey to becoming a 'greener' organization," said Herb Singer, President and Founder of Discount Car & Truck Rentals. "We recognize the importance and necessity of environmental sustainability and want to ensure we demonstrate best environmental practices in terms of our fleet composition, facilities and operations."

With the environmental impact of carbon emissions top of mind,  Discount has gone to great lengths to ensure that the majority of vehicles they purchase are fuel efficient and as a result, 91% of Discount's total fleet gets >28 mpg (Highway).  Programs to reduce the fleet's carbon footprint as well as Discount's own travel footprint have been launched and steps have been taken to reduce energy consumption and waste at Discount locations across Canada.
