SpeedWash Car Wash does its part by recycling too. We recycle the water we use to wash every vehicle. We capture the water that runs off the vehicles and then use that water in the early rinses and to mix with the detergents, but never in the final rinse! Here’s another way to help the environment....did you know washing your car at SpeedWash uses much less water than you would use at home? A typical home wash uses 80-140 gallons of water. Our washes average just 50 gallons of water per vehicle. So keep Kentucky beautiful ya'll, wash your car, truck or SUV at SpeedWash and keep recycling!
