Regulations. Laws. Codes.

We’ll call them Rules.

Wash racks aren’t mandatory in the US. But vehicle cleaning, pollution prevention and proper disposal of wash water is either regulated or about to be regulated pretty much everywhere in the US and Canada. We’ve compiled a list of regulations as a quick reference. It is by now means complete; however, these regulations do shed light on the growing awareness of the wash waters harmful effects on the environment. Please feel free to contact us if your municipality is not included.

Best Practices Are Natural

Good Rule of Thumb: Only Rain In The Drain

Avoid Penalties

Non-Compliance Fines Can Range Up To $37,000 Per Day, Per Violation
