Car and Vehicle Care
- Wash your car at the car wash if possible. All water and cleaning products are recycled and then go to the waste water treatment plant.
If you wash your car at home, park it on the lawn, and use plain water – less soap and solvents end up in a catchbasin or swale. At the very least, use a “safer” soap.
- Capture used oil and antifreeze from maintenance activities and take leftovers to a township Household Hazardous Waste Collection event.
Got a vehicle leak? Repair it pronto! Even small amounts of petroleum products are a big threat to water quality. Antifreeze is poisonous to children and pets.
