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.
