EnvironmentWhats so bad about driveway car washing?

Just consider all the corrosive and toxic substances that get deposited on well-traveled streets, roads and highways ...including asphalt, ferrites, engine and brake residue, antifreeze, grease, oil, rust and asbestos, to name only a few. All these contaminants collect on tires, wheels, fenders and other vehicle surfaces, after which runoff from home car washing can eventually release them into storm drains designed for rainwater. Even if bio-friendly soap (or no soap at all) is used, hosing off a car's body and wheels dislodges pollutants that can end up in rivers, lakes, and streams. Rather than flush these biohazards into the water supply, come to Wally Wash!

Now that we all know better...

At one time, the burning of trash in backyards and open areas was a common sight in our neighbourhoods, until concern for the environment ended this form of pollution. Today, we recycle much of our refuse, keeping it out of landfills and reducing pollution. Home car washing is another serious kind of pollution that can easily be eliminated.

Here's how Wally Wash is environmentally friendly! 

Wally Wash utilizes only professional car cleaning soaps and waxes.  They are certified phosphate free, are mixed only to effective levels that are deemed safe. 

Wally Wash wastewater is also treated on site via a solid separator and oil/grease separator tanks.  Once separated, these chemicals are treated by a certified waste disposal service provider.  The waste water is then sent to the city's sanitary sewer system for further processing prior to being released into the environment.
