Protect the Environment

Small changes can make a big difference. Here are some suggestions of what you and your family can do:

Fish-Friendly Car Wash Kit

Are you planning a fundraising car wash (PDF), or are you a business owner who allows fundraising car wash events on your property? Did you know that car wash events (PDF) cause surface water pollution? Good News, Edgewood has a free Car Wash Kit (PDF) (for use at events held within City limits).

Benefits of the Kit

Using the car wash kit helps to protect our lakes, streams, and Puget Sound. For more information about the impacts of pollution on Puget Sound, visit the Washington Department of Ecology's website. In case the kit is not a viable option for your group, please consider these Alternative Car Wash ideas!

Apply for the Kit

Everything you need is included in the kit, except the phosphate free, biodegradable soap, sponges, towels - and your volunteers, of course! An application and signed agreement is required to check out the kit. Contact City Hall at 253-952-3299 to find out how to borrow the kit for your event.
