If you’re a discerning car washer, you might be interested to know that one of our local car washes is part of a group of car washes that has agreed to hold themselves to a higher standard and to help car wash fundraisers be a little more eco-friendly:
The car washes that have signed the agreement have agreed to allow the county to inspect their sites to make sure they’re compliant with eco-friendly standards. And, some have gone beyond the basic standards and also recycle water used at their car wash bays and allow groups that hold car wash fundraisers to use their sites to avoid water pollution.
“Car washes to raise money is an All-American activity, and we don’t want to by any means dampen that,” said Bill Hayes, with Boulder County Public Health. “But when you see those fundraisers out on the streets, the wastewater is running into the gutter and going off into the streams and rivers.”
The only one in our area that agreed to do it was Coyote Car Wash, 3087 28th Street.
I should note, however, that this place has exclusively negative reviews on Yelp and Google, particularly relating to paying with a credit card – but then again, I don’t suppose I’d ever log in to give a positive review of a car wash, so maybe take that with a grain of salt. Have any of you used it?
